HEBRON (Ma’an) – Israeli forces assaulted a Palestinian farmer from the Hebron area in the southern West Bank after they broke though his home in his own olive field.
Ahmad Salamah Atawna told Ma’an that a group of Israeli soldiers broke into his house in Khirbet Jamrura neighborhood of Beit Kahil village to deliver a demolition order. He highlighted that the soldiers broke windows and doors in his two-room house in the middle of an olive field near Israel’s separation wall.
Atawna appealed to the Palestinian ministry of local governance urging them to provide the area with an electricity line so as to help the residents remain steadfast on their land.
The neighborhood measures about 1,200 acres located near the separation wall and Tarqumia checkpoint.
