BETHLEHEM, Monday, February 3, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli forces sealed off today all entrances to the village of Kisan, east of Bethlehem, in the southern occupied West Bank, as a prelude to take over a piece of land there, said a local official.

Kisan deputy head of village council, Ahmad Ghazal, told WAFA an Israeli military force stormed the village amid intensive security measures and sealed off all entrances, preventing residents from entering or leaving the village.

He said Israeli forces informed him of their intentions to take over a piece of land in the village, where a new school project has begun a few days ago. Forces said they will also confiscate all equipment there.
