Israeli bulldozers raze agricultural lands in Hebron

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli bulldozers razed Palestinian agricultural lands in the southern occupied West Bank city of Hebron, on Wednesday afternoon.

Locals reported that Israeli bulldozers razed some 15 dunams of agricultural lands, and destroyed retaining walls around them in the Wadi al-Samn area of southern Hebron.

The lands were identified as belonging to Said Abu Hadid .

Between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international law.

The Palestinian government has no jurisdiction over Israelis in the West Bank, and acts carried out by Israeli settlers often occur in the presence of Israeli military forces who rarely act to protect Palestinian residents.

The majority of settler thefts committed against Palestinians are met with impunity, with Israelis rarely facing consequences for such thefts.
