BETHLEHEM, Saturday, October 23, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers placed six mobile homes in an area south of Bethlehem, in the south of the occupied West Bank, as a prelude to stealing the Palestinian land, today said a local official.

Ammar Hijazi, member of the village council of Wad Rahal, told WAFA that some 400 settlers from the illegal settlement of Ifrat, backed by soldiers, broke into Khillat al-Nahla area, near Wad Rahal, and placed six mobile homes and several tents in the area, which is normally a prelude to taking over the land.

Last week, Israeli bulldozers leveled 10 dunums of land planted with olive saplings in the same area and demolished retaining walls and the ground foundation for a house that was being built there.

Officials believe that the recent Israeli assault on that area will eventually lead to taking over a large area of Palestinian land for settlement purposes.
