The Israeli army prevented, on Friday, Palestinians from holding prayers on the citizen-owned lands of Kifl Hares, in the northern West Bank, which is under threat of confiscation by the Israeli occupation, the Wall Resistance Commission reported.
Occupation soldiers attacked the participants with pepper-spray as they attempted to pass through the military roadblock. The army then erected flying roadblocks, closing the main entrance of Kifl Hares, which forced the citizens to perform the prayers at the village entrance.

Member of the Fatah movement, Ayman Ibdah said, “we will continue until our goal is achieved,” affirming that the Palestinian people will remain attached to their land.
Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) representative, Naeem Harb said, “Our participation today is a message that we cling to our land and our struggle until the defeat and the end of the occupation. These are our lands and in no way can we give them away.”
