BETHLEHEM, (PIC)– The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) confiscated on Monday a one million dollar worth of industrial equipment after breaking into the industrial zone in Beit Fujar town south of Bethlehem. The Quds Press quoted the town’s mayor Ali Taqatqa as saying that Israeli forces stormed the industrial zone in large numbers since the early morning hours and erected military checkpoints throughout the area, preventing the people’s movement. The IOF soldiers took nearly seven hours to dismantle the industrial equipment and machines before moving them to an unknown place. Palestinian workers were brutally assaulted during the raid, the sources added.
