HEBRON, Monday, July 11, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation forces today suppressed a demonstration against Israel’s seizure of Palestinian lands in the town of Bani Naim, east of Hebron city, in the southern occupied West Bank, according to WAFA correspondent.
Israeli forces beat up and assaulted the protesters, including anti-settlement activists, attacked them with stun grenades and tear gas canisters, and forced them out of the area.
Forces also attacked journalists at the scene and prevented them from doing their job under the pretext that the area is a closed military zone.
The ownership of the land targeted with seizure covers an area of more than 40 dunums, and belongs to the al-Manasra family.
Settlers from Bni Hefer settlement, built illegally on Palestinian lands to the east of Hebron, have recently fenced a plot of land and placed a caravan on the lands threatened with seizure as a prelude to taking over the land.
