AL-KHALIL, (PIC) – The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) attacked a Palestinian anti-settlement rally in the West Bank city of al-Khalil on Monday.
IOF soldiers beat anti-settlement activists and protestors and fired stun grenades and tear gas bombs at them before forcing them to leave the village of Bani Na’im east of al-Khalil.
Palestinian press crews were also attacked while they were covering the anti-settlement rally that condemned confiscating 40 dunums of Palestinian-owned lands in the Al-Hamra area belonging to the Manasra family.
Jewish settlers have fenced off Palestinian-owned land and installed a settlement caravan on it, in preparation to seize the land lot for the benefit of expanding the illegal settlement of Bani Hefer established on Palestinian lands east of the West Bank city of al-Khalil.
