Head of Jalud village council Abdullah Mohammad told the Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) that bulldozers from a nearby settlement outpost, protected by soldiers, razed around 60 dunums of land belonging to residents of the village.
He said that the settlers’ measures against residents in that area have escalated lately, and that soldiers have also prevented farmers from entering and working in their 300 dunums of land in the village.
