HEBRON, March 5, 2018 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers backed by a military escort Monday installed four new caravans in an area adjacent to the illegal Israeli settlement of Kharsina, to the east of the southern West Bank district of Hebron, said WAFA correspondent.
Israeli settlers set up four new caravans on a land area of 70-dunums overlooking several neighborhoods in the Hebron area, in an apparent prelude to take over the land for the benefit of establishing a new settlement outpost there.
The land belongs to three different families in Hebron known as Jwihan, Eida, and Abu al-Halawa.
Locals told WAFA that settlers uprooted a number of olive saplings in the same area belonging to the Eida family only a few days ago.
Meanwhile, Israeli forces reportedly set up a metal gate near the Israeli military watchtower erected at the junction of the Village of Kharsa to the south of Hebron.
