BETHLEHEM, Thursday, May 26, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli bulldozers today razed Palestinian-owned farmland in the area of Khallet al-Nahla, south of the occupied West Bank city of Bethlehem, according to local sources.

Coordinator of the National Committee against the Wall and Settlements, Hassan Brijieh, told WAFA that a sizable Israeli military force escorted bulldozers to the area, located near Wadi Rahal village, and leveled a 3-donum plot of farmland planted with olive trees and belonging to Saleh Jawareesh.

He added that the area has been a regular target of the Israeli army and settlers’ attacks as a means to push its Palestinian residents out of their lands in order to take them over to expand the nearby illegal colonial settlement of Efrat.
