Israeli forces 'close Hebron farmland'

Dec. 2, 2011 12:37 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 2, 2011 7:26 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces blocked a group of Palestinians from working on their land in southern Hebron on Thursday, farmers told Ma'an.

Ibrahim Abu Subha said around 30 farmers went to the fields near Susiya village, close to the southern edge of the West Bank, on Thursday morning.

When they began work, Israeli forces arrived and ordered them off the land, declaring the 2,000 dunum area a closed military zone.

Settlers from nearby Jewish-only communities inside the West Bank "incited forces against the Palestinians," when the group told soldiers they owned the fields, Abu Sabha said.

An Israeli military spokesman said he was not familiar with the incident.
