Israeli authorities order Palestinians to stop work on their land in Hebron area

HEBRON, Monday, August 24, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli authorities ordered today a number of Palestinian residents to stop work on their lands in the village of Birin in the southern West Bank district of Hebron, according to a local activist.

Coordinator of the popular and national committees in southern Hebron, Rateb al-Jabour, said Israeli forces stormed the village of Birin and handed five residents notices ordering them to stop work on their lands.

The activist said that Israeli authorities’ measures in the said village aim at forcing residents to leave their land in order to seize it for the benefit of expanding nearby illegal Israeli settlements.

Earlier today, Israeli settlers set up a new outpost in the village, which is usually a prelude to building a new illegal settlement.
