HEBRON, Wednesday, June 29, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli forces and settlers today assaulted activists participating in an olive-tree-planting activity in lands threatened with confiscation in Masafer Yatta in the South Hebron Hills, south of the occupied West Bank.
Rateb Jabour, an activist, told WAFA that large groups of settlers from the illegal Israeli settlement of Susya, as well as Israeli soldiers, assaulted activists as they were holding an activity to plant olive trees in lands threatened with confiscation in Masafer Yatta.
He noted that the lands belong to the families of al-Harini and al-Daajnah, adding that the settlers and soldiers physically and verbally assaulted them using offensive and racist slurs.
Jabour said that the activists were successful in removing a tent that was previously established by settlers on the land in preparation for seizing it.
