BETHLEHEM, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation army on Tuesday set up a military watchtower in an agricultural Palestinian land seized by a group of Jewish settlers in Al-Khader village, south of Bethlehem.

Ahmad Salah, the coordinator of the popular committee against settlements in Al-Khader, told Quds press that Israeli occupation forces (IOF) accompanied with settlers set up a military watchtower in an agricultural area to the west of the town.

He pointed out that the area was seized by the Jewish settlers ten days ago where they placed a mobile home.

Salah said this watchtower will be used as a military outpost to monitor farmers’ movement, which farmers consider a nightmare as the grape harvest season is approaching and they are afraid of being prevented from accessing their agricultural lands.
