Days Of Palestine – West Bank
Hordes of Israeli settlers on Sunday assaulted Palestinian farmers and prevented them from working in their lands in Beit Ummar town in the West Bank district of al-Khalil.
Activist Mohammed Awad said that Israeli settlers from Karmei Tzur settlement, which was built illegally on Palestinian-owned land north of al-Khalil, stormed Palestinian farmlands in Beit Ummar and forced their owners out.
The settlers, who were escorted by armed forces, warned the farmers against coming back to their lands.
Taking advantage of the coronavirus crisis, Israeli settlers have lately escalated their harassment of Palestinian citizens in the West Bank.
