BETHLEHEM, Tuesday, August 11, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation forces today razed agricultural land and uprooted 100 olive trees in Wad Rahhal village, south of the southern West Bank city of Bethlehem, according to a local official.

Hasan Breijieh, office director of the Wall and Settlements Resistance Committee, told WAFA that the forces razed more than two dunums of land, uprooting 100 olive trees, and destroyed a retaining wall under the pretext it is an archeological area.

Israel has previously seized 1200 dunums of the village land in order to establish the illegal settlement of Givat Itam.
