PNN/ Hebron/

Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Monday uprooted 200 olive trees, and uprooted 13 dunums of agricultural land in the town of Beit Ula, west of Hebron.

Head of the Farmers Services Department at the Hebron Agricultural Department Hashim Badarin said that the occupation forces stormed the Khirbet Kharouf area west of the town of Beit Ula, uprooted 200 olive trees planted ten years ago, and destroyed the fence and chains surrounding the targeted land.

The farmer and landowner Hijazi al-Tarshan said that the occupation forces are pursuing a policy of vandalism and uprooting of trees and trying to prevent farmers from working in their lands in this area near the wall of racist expansion in preparation for the seizure.

For the second time in a row, Israeli occupying forces razed 13 donums of agricultural land owned by Suleiman Mahmoud al-‘Adm, and razed the barbed wire surrounding the farmland of Hazem al-‘Ulama.

The western area of ​​Beit Ula is being bulldozed and destroyed, uprooting crops, with the aim of restricting the residents and forcing them to leave their lands adjacent to the settlements.
