HEBRON, Sunday, May 22, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers today removed and robbed a Palestinian-owned tent in Khirbet Martaba, a village located east of the town of Yatta in the southern West Bank province of Hebron, according to local sources.

Israeli Colonizers Continue Bulldozing Palestinian lands In Northern Plains

Illegal Israeli colonizers continued Sunday, the bulldozing of Palestinian lands and the preparations for a new illegal colony in Khirbat al-Farisiyya village, in the West Bank’s Northern Plains.

Local human rights activist Aref Daraghma said the colonizers started the bulldozing and the preparations on the stolen Palestinian lands nearly a month ago, near the tents of the local shepherds.

Daraghma said the colonizers are trying to remove the Palestinians to build colonialist, segregated infrastructure, including a school and public facilities.

He added that the colonizers bulldozed and uprooted about 30 Dunams of Palestinian lands and installed tents and a large water tank hauled by heavy machinery.

It is worth mentioning that the Israeli army initially declared the lands a “closed military zone,” preventing the Palestinians from entering it, but at the same time allowing the colonizers to enter them to establish an outpost.

The Palestinians fear that the Israeli army is planning to annex 28.000 Dunams of Palestinian farming and grazing areas, which are essential for the shepherds and farmers.

Two Detainees Continue Hunger Strike Protesting Administrative Detention

The Palestinian Detainees’ Committee has reported that two political prisoners held by Israel are continuing the hunger strikes for the 81st and 46th days, protesting their continued Administrative Detention without charges or trial.

The Committee stated that Khalil Awawda, 40, from Ethna town, northwest of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, began his strike 81 days ago and is suffering various serious complications.

It said the detainee is now dependent on a wheelchair and suffers a sharp pain in the joints and migraine, dizziness, blurred vision, and other complications.

The Committee also said that the Prison Authority frequently transfers him to Israeli hospitals to undergo medical checkups; however, he is constantly sent back to the prison clinic without being examined.

“The constant transfers are another way to punish the detainees and prevent them from resting,” the Committee said, “The prison authority is trying to cause more pressure and exhaustion to force the detainees to end the hunger strike without achieving their legitimate demands.”

Also, detainee Rayed Rayyan, 27, from Beit Doqqo village, north of occupied Jerusalem, continues the hunger strike for the 46th day, despite his deterioration of health.

The Committee said Rayyan has constant migraine, joint pain, fatigue, Glaucoma, repeated vomiting, and dizziness, and cannot walk or stand.
