Israeli Bulldozers Raze Land near Bethlehem

BETHLEHEM, November 21, 2013 (WAFA) – Israeli bulldozers Thursday razed Palestinian-owned agricultural land in the town of al-Khader, south of Bethlehem, as a prelude to take over the land, according to a local activist.

Coordinator of the committee against the Apartheid Wall, Ahmad Salah, told WAFA that Israeli bulldozers razed around 10 dunums of land located south of the town for the benefit of expanding the settlement of Hatamar, built illegally on the al-Khader land, to connect it to the Gush Etzion settlement bloc.
