Israeli occupation forces bulldoze Palestinian land east of Al-Khalil to expand settlements

Palestine Information Center – 09/08/2011

AL-KHALIL — Israeli occupation forces (IOF) bulldozed 19 dunums of Palestinian land in Baka’a area to the east of Al-Khalil on Monday in preparation for annexing them to nearby Jewish settlements, local sources said.

They said that the IOF soldiers, accompanied by police and border police forces and civil administration officials raided the area and destroyed part of the irrigation network and confiscated it.

The sources noted that the act was the second of its kind and targeted lands owned by two Palestinian citizens.

They charged that the step was meant to evict the farmers out of their land and to annex it to the nearby settlements of Kharsina and Kiryat Arba.

The Baka’a is the most fertile area in the region and its farmers are constantly harassed by Jewish settlers.
