Israeli settlers destroy vine trees, uproot plants south of Bethlehem

PNN/ Bethlehem/

A group of Israeli settlers on Monday destroyed grapevines, a shed and uprooted plants, belonging to a Palestinian farmer in Al-Khader town, south of  Bethlehem, central West Bank.

Ahmad Salah, the coordinator of the Popular Committee against the Wall and Settlements in al-Khader, said the assailant broke the main gate leading to the Palestinian land, uprooted grapevine shrubs and cut their arbors, IMEMC reported.

“This was not the first attack of its kind; the area has been subject to constant similar assaults,” he said, “They want the Palestinian to abandon their lands in order to expand the illegal colonies that surround them.”
