BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Monday afternoon seized eight tractors belonging to Palestinian farmers in the al-Yamun and Kafr Than areas in Marj Ibn Amer in Jenin in the northern West Bank.

Witnesses from the al-Labdi family told Ma’an that Israeli forces raided the field and seized two tractors belonging to them and six tractors belonging to the al-Samoudi, Abu Hasan and other families.

They assaulted a number of farmers who tried to stop soldiers from seizing the tractors.

Israeli forces took the tractors to Salim military base in Nablus, claiming that they were unlicensed, while the families insisted that the tractors were completely legal and had the proper documentation.
