Gaza27AprSALFIT (PNIC):-Jewish settlers escorted by soldiers on Monday stormed Wadi Qana area, northwest of Salfit, and embarked on demolishing agricultural structures belonging to Palestinian farmers.

Local sources told the (PNIC) that Israeli soldiers escorting settlers claiming to be from an environmental protection committee demolished two agricultural structures, amid fears of their intent to remove more buildings.

According to the sources, the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) always justifies such demolitions by claiming that the area is an agricultural reserve where changes and construction activities made by the locals are not allowed.

Over the past years, the IOF and settlers destroyed and uprooted thousands of olive trees and saplings in the area under the same pretext.

In this regard, Palestinian researcher Khaled Ma’aali said that the IOA had already threatened to raze several structures in Wadi Qana at the pretext that local framers violated the law by renovating and making changes to those structures.

Wadi Qana is encircled by eight illegal settlements encroaching slowly on what has remained of it, while Israel tries hard to impose restrictions on the local farmers to prevent them from developing and working their agricultural lands and force them to leave the area.
