BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers from settlements in the Tuqu village in southern eastern Bethlehem took over lands belonging to the al-Shaer and al-Umour families on Saturday.

Taysir Abu Mifreh, head of Tuqu town council, told Ma'an that a group of settlers protected by soldiers took over al-Shaer and al-Umour lands, over 100 dunams, near a settlement in eastern Tuqu.

Abu Mifreh highlighted that settlers set up four caravans in the Thahr al-Kharrubah area next to the illegal Roman outpost in order to expand it and turn it into a settlement.

He called upon all official and concerned parties to intervene to protect the areas near the settlement.
