PFLP leader: Israeli forces destroy pipes, detain 2

Hebron – Ma'an – Israeli forces destroyed over 30 dunums of farmland in the Hebron village of Al-Baq'a and detained two relatives Monday, the landowner and a Palestinian faction leader said.

Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine leader Badran Jabir said Israeli troops ransacked his home and farm, damaging irrigation networks and seedlings. He said he and his wife were assaulted as they tried to defend their property.

“When my 15-year-old son Wadi and my son-in-law, 32-year-old Fadl Ja’bari, tried to defend myself and my wife, Israeli soldiers beat them before detaining them,” Jabir added.

Locals in Hebron confirmed seeing Israeli bulldozers overturn vast areas of farmland. They destroyed several irrigation networks, locals said.

A spokesman for Israel's Civil Administration said inspectors destroyed pipes that were illegally set up and stealing water from other sources. He said no farmland was destroyed in the process.

A representative from Israel's border guard unit did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
