WEST BANK, (PIC) – The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Sunday morning stormed Ein al-Hilweh area in the northern Jordan Valley and confiscated construction materials.
Local official Aref Daraghmeh said that the IOF raided a Bedouin family’s tent in Ein al-Hilweh and seized building materials from inside it.
In a separate incident, violent clashes broke out on the same day between Palestinian citizens and a horde of extremist Jewish settlers in Deir al-Hatab town, east of Nablus.
Local sources said that the clashes started after the settlers attacked local farmers as they were picking olives from their own groves near the illegal settlement of Elon Moreh.
They added that Israeli border policemen were protecting the settlers during their assault on the farmers.
They also said that the settlers took over vast tracts of Palestinian-owned land, destroyed dozens of olive trees with toxic chemicals and flooded olive groves with sewage in the area.
