Hasan Al-Jarmi, the land owner, said that Israeli bulldozers surrounded the area, in the early morning hours, bulldozing the land and uprooting around 120 palm trees under the pretext they were planted in Area C, under full Israeli control.
He added that the action has sabotaged his efforts, exerted over the past ten years, to reclaim his farmland and has dispelled his hopes to set up an income-generating project on his land, stressing that he would continue to plant his land despite all the Israeli measures.
