AL-KHALIL, (PIC) — A group of Israeli settlers attacked, on Monday evening, Palestinian farmers near the town al-Rihiya in the south of al-Khalil.
Local sources said that settlers from the settlement of “Beit Haggai”, set up on Palestinian land in the south of al-Khalil, attacked Palestinian farmers and citizens, under the protection of the occupation forces, which had prevented the farmers from entering their lands located near the settlement.
The sources added that the occupation arrested a Palestinian citizen during the attacks, and transferred him to an unknown destination.
Meanwhile, local sources in the south of al-Khalil said that the occupation forces handed over on Tuesday to a number of citizens in Deir Samet, Beit Awwa and Marah Bakar area demolition notices for five installations, including houses, under the pretext that they have been built without permits.
Eyewitnesses told PIC that the Israeli soldiers also raided the areas in the west of al-Khalil where they handed over to the owner of an installation a demolition notice.
The Israeli soldiers have been intensively deployed in several areas in the east of al-Khalil, in the southern West Bank, and at the military checkpoint, which had been set up near the northern entrance of the city.
The policy of abuses adopted against Palestinians at the checkpoints has recently escalated through stopping and searching the vehicles, with no justification, and causing traffic disruption
