HEBRON, Monday, September 7, 2020 (WAFA) - Israeli occupation forces today razed large areas of Palestinian-owned lands located near an illegal Israeli settlement in the south of the occupied West Bank, witnesses and local sources told WAFA.

They said Israeli occupation forces raided an area known as Khirbet Zanouta, near the illegal Israeli settlement of Shimaa, as army bulldozers proceeded to raze lands owned by local families.

It is believed Israel destroys the land to prevent its owners from reclaiming it and therefore take it over and join it to nearby settlements.

Meanwhile, Israeli occupation forces also razed land and destroyed water networks near Tuwwaneh village in Masafer Yatta, also in the south of the West Bank.
