IMEMC  -  18 November 2011

On Friday, a group of Israeli settlers attacked a family in al-Khader Village, near Bethlehem, while they were in their farm. The land is located near the illegal settlement “Eliezer”, the Palestine news & info agency reported (WAFA) reported.

Hassan Salah, one of the family members, said that they were surprised when they saw the settlers cultivating olive trees on their land.

The settlers used their dogs and sticks to assault them when they tried to stop them. This resulted in the injuries to the mother aged 70.

Hassan said that the two parties headed to the Israeli police station in the nearby illegal settlement “Etzion”, but the police claimed that the case was transferred to the court.

He added that the Palestinian farm lands are subject to ongoing Israeli attacks and attempts to take over the land for the benefit of new settlement construction.
