BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli army forces reportedly forced a Palestinian farmer off of his land on Saturday in the southern occupied West Bank district of Bethlehem, claiming he did not have permission, according to official Palestinian Authority (PA)-owned Wafa news agency.

Wafa reported that the incident took place in the town of al-Khader, south of Bethlehem city. According to the report, Israeli soldiers briefly detained 60-year-old Moussa Issa before ordering him to leave his land.

Issa was allegedly forced off his land due to the fact that he did not “coordinate being on his land with the security at the illegal settlement of Efrat,” according to Wafa.

“Issa was told that he needs to get permission from the settlement guards first if he wants to be on his land,” Wafa added.
