The settlers to annex the Palestinian land to the illegal Jewish settlement of Kiryat Arba.

Israeli occupation settlers razed around 24 dunums of Palestinian land near illegal Israeli settlement east of occupied West Bank city of Al-Khalil.

Palestinian anti-settlement activist Aref Jaber said that a group of Israeli Jewish settlers from the illegal Israeli settlement of Kiryat Arba razed around 24 dunums of Palestinian land.

He said that the Israeli occupation settlers razed the Palestinian land under heavy protection of the Israeli occupation forces.

Jaber said that the land belonged to heirs of local resident Abbas Jaber.

The activist said that this is a prelude to take over the land for the benefit of expanding the settlement of Kiryat Arba.

He added that the land owners filed several complaints in Israeli courts, noting that the heirs own the TAPU, a Turkish title deed, as well as Palestinian and Israeli documents that prove ownership of the land.
