OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– The Palestinian natives of Beit Iksa village, northwest of occupied Jerusalem, challenged on Saturday the Israeli siege on their village and determined to reach their seized lands.

Head of the municipal council in the village Kamal Hababa told the Palestinian information center (PIC) that Beit Iksa villagers would never yield to Israel’s fait accompli in their village and would defend every inch of its soil.

Hababa said the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) cordoned off the village and prevented dozens of Beit Iksa natives from reaching their homes.

He added that the Israeli military blockade on Beit Iksa was aimed to bar the villagers and the anti-wall activists from reaching the evacuated Al-Karama camp that had been established a week ago in the village to confront Israel’s settlement expansion.
