Israeli occupation forces bulldoze cultivated land in Salfit to build watchtower


SALFIT, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) bulldozed cultivated land lots in Hares village near Salfit city to prepare for building a military watchtower.

Omar Samara, the head of the village’s municipal council, told Quds Press that the IOF bulldozers started working on Wednesday in the fields to the east of the village.

He said that the soldiers built a fence of barbed wire around the targeted land, adding that they intend to monitor the main highway passing near that land.

Samara said that the watchtower would also provide protection for passing Jewish settlers and army soldiers, expecting that the watchtower would negatively affect the work of Palestinian farmers who head to their fields near to that area.
