Military Closes Farm Road in Bethlehem

BETHLEHEM, June 8, 2013 (WAFA) – The Israeli military closed Saturday with rocks and mounds of dirt a farm road in al-Khader, south of Bethlehem, preventing area farmers from reaching their land, according to Ahmad Salah, a local activist.

He said army bulldozers closed the road that connects the town to 50,000 square meters of land planted with grapes making it difficult for the farmers to harvest their crop at the peak of the grape harvest season.
