Hebron, ALRAY - Israeli settlers razed 25 Dunums of lands in Jales town to the east of West Bank city of Hebron.
Citizen from the town, Abu Rami al-Zaru, said the colonial settlers’ bulldozers penetrated into the lands of al-Tamimi family near Havat Jal and razed them.
This measure aimed to expand the nearby settlement for the building of gardens at the expense of the Palestinian citizens.
Abu Rami said that the razing operation were conducted within the sight of the Israeli occupation soldiers and police who protected the colonial settlers in their assaults to Palestinians.
Settlers regularly attack West Bank village, burning cars and uprooting olive trees.
In 2013, there were 399 incidents of settler violence against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
The United Nations regards the Israeli settlements as illegal because the territories were captured in the war and are hence subject to the Geneva Conventions, which forbid construction on occupied lands.
