Israeli army closes road Palestinian farmers use to reach their fields in south of West Bank

 

HEBRON, Tuesday, March 3, 2020 (WAFA) – The Israeli army today closed a road farmers in Khirbet Shaab al-Batm in Masafer Yatta in the south of the occupied West Bank used to reach their fields, according to Rateb Jabour, a local activist.

He told WAFA that Israeli forces raided the area and closed the road that connects the hamlet with Masafer Yatta.

He said the Committee against the Wall and Settlements had rehabilitated the road to make it easier for local residents to access their homes and fields.

The Israeli army has previously destroyed the same road in an effort to force the Palestinian inhabitants to leave their homes and lands in order to replace them with illegal settlements.
