BETHLEHEM (The Inside Palestine) – A Palestinian civilian was injured on Monday after a group of Jewish settlers stormed the village of Wadi Rahal south of the West Bank city of Bethlehem.

The Jewish settlers assaulted the Palestinian civilian Mohammad Ayish while he was in his land, injuring him and forcing him to abandon his land. In another development, Israeli bulldozers razed 12 dunums of Palestinian-owned lands in the area of Wadi Saeir in the West Bank city of al-Khalil. 

Moreover, the Israeli bulldozers destroyed several perennial olive trees in al-Khalil in order to expand a military checkpoint that imposes restrictions on the movement of Palestinian civilians. 

Israeli occupation soldiers and Jewish settlers have been escalating their attacks against Palestinian civilians in the West Bank, in an attempt to forcibly expel Palestinians from their lands and make way for expanding Jewish-only settlements.
