Israeli settlers cut down hundreds of vineyards in Bethlehem-area town

 

BETHLEHEM, July 7, 2018 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers Saturday cut down hundreds of fruitful vineyards belonging to Palestinians in the town of al-Khader, in the southern West Bank district of Bethlehem, said a local activist.

Ahmad Salah, coordinator of the Anti-Settlement Committee in the town, told WAFA correspondent settlers cut down around 200 fruitful vineyards located adjacent to two illegal Israeli settlements; Efrat and Eliezer.

He said Israeli forces have recently intensified their measures against the town locals as a prelude to take over the land for the benefit of settlement expansion.
