AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– IOF handed a number of Palestinians from the village of Kharas to the west of the southern West Bank city of al-Khalil eviction notices demanding the surrender of a land area of 20 dunums near the apartheid wall to the west of the village.

Local sources said that the IOF claimed that the concerned land is government owned while in fact some of the land belongs to Khalil al-Horoub, a resident of the village.

The targeted land is about 300 meters to the east of the apartheid wall and is planted with olive and almond trees which have been there for long years.

There has been an increase in such notices in an attempt by the Israeli occupation to confiscate hundreds of dunums of land from their Palestinian owners.

In the same context IOF troops closed main roads around the city of al-Khalil using piles of earth under security pretexts.

The IOF also raided the Arab al-Hadhalin neighbourhood of Yatta village, asked the school’s headmaster to evacuate the school which they then turned into a military post.

Local sources said that IOF troops closed the main road between Samu’ and Daheria villages. They also closed entrances to the villages of Beit Amra and Wadi al-Shajnah.
