Factory owner: Israeli forces seized stone blocks for closure

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Israeli forces raided a stone factory in Beit Ummar late on Saturday, the owner told Ma’an.

Soldiers accompanied by bulldozers confiscated ten large stone slabs for use blocking entrances to the Hebron-district village, Issam Abu Ayyash told Ma’an.

Israeli forces threatened him when he tried to intervene, Abu Ayyash said.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was not familiar with the incident.

On Saturday, Beit Ummar Popular committee spokesman Muhammad Awad told Ma’an that Israeli forces closed entrances to the village with concrete blocks overnight Friday.
