HEBRON, Thursday, August 22, 2019 (WAFA) – Israeli forces removed by force Palestinian vegetable stands and vendors at Wadi al-Khalil military crossing south of Dhahriyeh in the south of the West Bank, according to WAFA correspondent.
He said that with the removal of the stands the vendors and their families have lost their sole source of income. Losses were estimated in the thousands of dollars.
The stands used to serve hundreds of Palestinian workers who daily cross the military checkpoint to work in Israel and return home in the afternoon and who buy their home needs from them.
The army informed the vendors not to return to that area.
