BETHLEHEM, Tuesday, January 26, 2021 (WAFA) – Palestinian farmers in al-Maasara village, south of the southern West Bank city of Bethlehem, today confronted Israeli settlers who trespassed on their lands and kicked them out, according to a local official.

Hasan Breijieh, who heads the Bethlehem office of the Wall and Settlements Resistance Commission, told WAFA that the settlers broke into the Palestinian farms with their sheep in an effort to destroy the crops the farmers have been planting.

He said the farmers confronted the trespassers and succeeded in kicking them out of their lands but not before damage was done to the crops.

The settlers and Israeli occupation forces, said Breijieh, have recently escalated their attacks and violations against Palestinian villages in the Bethlehem district.
