Palestinians protesting Israeli destruction of their lands attacked by soldiers, two detained

HEBRON, Monday, March 8, 2021 (WAFA) – Two Palestinians were today detained and several others were hurt when Israeli soldiers attacked Palestinian farmers protesting destruction of their land south of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, according to a local activist.

Soldiers attacked the farmers with teargas and stun grenades as they gathered on their lands to protest the army’s levelling of the land in order to take it over for the expansion of the illegal Israeli settlement of Maon, said the activist Rateb Jabour, from the anti-wall, anti-settlements popular committees.

One farmer was hit by a teargas canister in the leg and many suffered from inhaling the teargas fired by the soldiers. Two were also detained aged 60 and 40 years, said Jabour.
