BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israel's army cleared landmines near Bethlehem on Monday morning, locals and an army official said.

Locals told Ma'an that troops entered Husan village, west of Bethlehem, and cordoned off lands belonging to Dawoud Mohammad Abdullah Hamamreh with barbed wire.

They said the army was removing landmines left by the Jordanian army before Israel captured the West Bank in 1967, and the operation is in coordination with the Palestinian governor of Bethlehem.

An army spokeswoman said the army has successfully cleared landmines in the area during the operation.

Good. More cooperation on both sides could forge the trust necessary for the future.

This shows the callousness of the IDF. If the mines were close to a Jewish population , the mines would have been cleared on June 10/1967 . Typical of occupation powers to never protect the occupied till it starts affecting them. Millions of unexploded ordinance still litter north Africa ( Egypt Libya) from WWII that still kill and injur unsuspecting Bedouins. Do you think the humanitarian west cares about those people?
