AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Jewish settlers from Kiryat Arba settlement started a big fire in Palestinian farms south of Al-Khalil city on Wednesday afternoon, local sources reported.

They said that tens of settlers attacked the farmland located between their settlement and Bani Naim village, south of Al-Khalil city, setting vast areas cultivated with wheat on fire.

The sources noted that the blaze quickly spread in hundreds of dunums surrounding the settlement, adding that Palestinian fire brigades rushed to the scene but the fire was much bigger than their capabilities.

Jewish settlers in the West Bank almost daily assault citizens and damage their cultivated land lots in a bid to terrorize them away and annex the land. Israeli occupation army gives a blind eye to such practices and even protects those settlers.
