Israeli bulldozers raze Palestinian land, olive trees

Days of Palestine -

Israeli occupation forces (IOF) used military bulldozers to raze Palestinian cultivated land lots in Beit Jala to the west of Bethlehem on Monday.

Owner of the land Walid Zireina said that the IOF soldiers broke into his and his brother’s land and bulldozed the four-dunum land lot, noting that Israeli municipality teams were in the company of the soldiers.

He pointed out that the bulldozing cut off dozens of olive trees, noting that the land included at least 200 olives trees.

He said that the IOF declared the area a closed military zone and arrested his brother Ayman, who was in his land during the process.
