Israeli forces seize tents used by farmers west of Bethlehem as animal barns

BETHLEHEM, Israeli forces Wednesday took over tents used as animal barns by Palestinian farmers living in the town of Nahalin to the west of the southern West Bank district of Bethlehem, said a local official.

Deputy Mayor of Nahalin village, Hani Fnoon, told WAFA an Israeli military force stormed Ein Fares area to the west of the town and removed and took over the tents that were placed there by the anti-settlement and wall committee as part of efforts to support the steadfastness of Palestinians in the area in light of almost daily Israeli forces and settlers’ violations against them.

Israeli occupation authorities have escalated their measures against Palestinians in the town. The measures include the seizure of land and halt on construction orders, in addition to continued house-to-house raid and arrest campaigns.
