Palestinian farmers brutally attacked by IOF in Bethlehem
The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) brutally attacked a group of Palestinian farmers in their agricultural land west of Bethlehem to the south of West Bank on Saturday evening.
Local sources affirmed that Israeli forces stormed Nahalin town, west of Bethlehem, and attacked a number of local farmers while working in their agricultural land.
A vehicle and a bulldozer were confiscated during the IOF attack.
Israeli forces claimed that the agricultural land is Israeli-owned.
However, local sources affirmed that the land is owned by Palestinian families who have original ownership documents.
Such Israeli attacks mainly aim at displacing Palestinian residents from their hometowns for the profit of Israeli settlement expansion.
