Jewish settlers raze vast tracts of Palestinian agricultural land east of Yatta 20Mar11 March 21, 2011

The Palestinian Information Center -  20 March 2011

Dozens of Jewish settlers destroyed Saturday morning 50 dunums of agricultural lands belonging to Nawaj’a family near Susya settlement, east of Yatta town.

A spokesman for the Palestinian family of Nawaj’a said the settlers under military protection sabotaged the lands, uprooted crops and blocked shepherds from getting to their grazing land.

In a separate incident, the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) attacked villagers from Khirbet Atwana, east of Yatta town, and foreign activists during a march held there in protest at the violations committed by Israeli troops and settlers against the Palestinians.

The IOF fired tear gas and stun grenades to disperse the villagers and foreign activists, which led to the injury of one Palestinian citizen called Fadel Al-Rabaee.

The troops also kidnapped the son of Rabaee during the march and took him to an unknown destination.
