Days of Palestine – Bethlehem

Israeli settlers stole Tuesday 10 dunums of Palestinian-owned land in al-Khader town, south of Bethlehem, in the south of the West Bank, according to a local activist.

Ahmad Salah, an activist, said that a group of settlers took over a 10-dunum plot of land in the southern part of al-Khader adjacent to the illegal colonial settlement of Efrat.

The settlers, Salah added, planted the stolen land with a variety of saplings, an indication they want to steal the remaining 40 dunums of land.

The Israeli soldiers forced one of the owners of the stolen land and a tractor driver to leave the area, said Salah.
