Israeli army clears landmines near Bethlehem

Dec. 31, 2012 12:55 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 2, 2013 6:32 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israel's army cleared landmines near Bethlehem on Monday morning, locals and an army official said.

Locals told Ma'an that troops entered Husan village, west of Bethlehem, and cordoned off lands belonging to Dawoud Mohammad Abdullah Hamamreh with barbed wire.

They said the army was removing landmines left by the Jordanian army before Israel captured the West Bank in 1967, and the operation is in coordination with the Palestinian governor of Bethlehem.

An army spokeswoman said the army has successfully cleared landmines in the area during the operation.
