Israeli occupation forces on Sunday ransacked and teared down vegetable-selling stalls near Wadi Al-Khalil checkpoint, on the Hebron-Beersheba road, according to local sources.
Israeli forces raided the stalls, which are used for selling vegetables, fruits and other food items, and ordered their Palestinian owners to leave the area, before proceeding to dismantle them and destroy their content. Losses were estimated at thousands of dollars.
The forces also threatened the owners not to return to the dismantled stalls or the vicinity of the checkpoint.
The dismantled stalls are the main source of livelihood for their owners, and are also a preferred market for Palestinian workers who daily commute to Israel for their workplace and return home to the West Bank via the checkpoint.
