Israel halts work on European-funded agricultural road near Bethlehem

Road al-Khadr

Israeli occupation forces (IOF) Saturday ordered a halt to work on opening an agricultural road in the village of al-Khadr, south of the city of Bethlehem in the West Bank, according to Ahmad Salah, a local activist.

He told Quds Press that the IOF stopped work on the road that is supposed to serve several farmers in the area and which was funded by the Basque Agency for Development Cooperation for the sake of helping farmers access their lands in rugged areas.

The soldiers informed the workers from Palestinian Agricultural Relief Committees that they would confiscate their vehicles and tools if they continue to work on the road.
