HEBRON, RAFAH, October 6, 2016 (WAFA) – Israeli army bulldozers on Thursday razed land in the village of Kharas, west of Hebron, as well as land in Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip, according to sources.

Abdul Fattah Hmeidan, head of Kharas village council, told WAFA that soldiers and members from the so-called civil administration, an arm of the military government, raided an area west of the village and proceeded to raze 38 dunums of land, part of which was planted with olive trees.

He said the soldiers also destroyed water wells and retaining walls.

Meanwhile, army vehicles crossed the Gaza border near Rafah in the south and razed land.

Witnesses told WAFA that six army vehicles, including two bulldozers, crossed the border and reached more than 150 meters inside Rafah. Drones were also flying in the area.

The bulldozers razed border land and erected dirt barriers along the border area.
