Israeli soldiers prevent farmers access to their lands, teachers to their schools in south of the West Bank

HEBRON, Tuesday, December 08, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation soldiers today prevented Palestinian farmers from reaching their lands in al-Thala area, east of Yatta, and teachers at Susya school from reaching their school in Masafer Yatta, in the south of the West Bank, according to a local source.

Rateb al-Jabour, active in the anti-wall and settlements committees, said Israeli forces had set up a flying checkpoint on the road leading to al-Thala area and denied the farmers access to their lands, which are under the threat of takeover.

He said dozens of people in al-Thala make a living off raising livestock, noting that the occupation authorities are continuously attempting to take over the area in order to expand their illegal outposts.

Meanwhile, soldiers also prevented teachers of Susya school from reaching their school and threatened to detain them after holding them for a while.
