Israeli forces raze plot of land near Jerusalem

 

JERUSALEM, Sunday, June 28, 2020 (WAFA) - Large units of Israeli forces raided today the village of Beit Iksa, northwest of the occupied city of Jerusalem, and proceeded to raze a plot of land belonging to a local Palestinian family, local sources said.

Local witnesses told WAFA that forces, accompanied by a bulldozer, razed a plot of land belonging to the Hamayel family.

Forces reportedly deployed heavily in the area, sealed off the village entrances, and took over the rooftops of several nearby homes turning them into military outposts before proceeding to raze the land.

Beit Iksa has a population of around 2000 people, and is surrounded on all sides by illegal Israel settlements and the separation barrier.
