Rateb al-Jbour, Coordinator of the Popular Committee against the wall and settlements in the south of Hebron, said that a group of settlers from the Evi Gal and Mtsaby Yaear illegal settlements burnt crops this morning in Eqwywes, in the south of the West Bank.

He added that the residents are putting out the fire in the fields, which belong to Khaled Mousa al-Najar. Al-Jbour called on all the human rights organizations and international institutions to stop the Israeli army and the settlers from attacking the Palestinians of south Hebron hills.

He mentioned that in the southern area of the Hebron governorate, the residents are always suffering from settlers and IOF activities, which are aimed to expel the residents by demolishing their homes and seizing their lands.

Additionally, Israeli bulldozers are damaging agricultural lands and uprooting trees in the area of Thaher–Sobeh, west of Salfit, in the north of the West Bank.
