On Tuesday 30th October, Israeli bulldozers escorted by forces from the Israeli army, raided al-Makhrour area in Beit Jala and started to raze its lands.
Bashir al-Sous, one of the farmers told PNN that an area of about 20 acres was razed.
It's worth noting that al-Makhrour is an area located to the West of Beit-Jala city, and considered a continuous target for Israeli authorities due to its residence in Area C.
Israeli authorities prevent the lands' owners from constructing, digging wells, or even building a wall in that area. Nowadays, farmers are attacked and banned from reaching their lands to harvest their olive trees.
