The sources pointed out that the clashes broke out in the area of ​​Bab Zawiya between zionist settlers, protected by Israeli forces, and Palestinian youths who pelted the Israelis with stones in rejection of the raid into their city.

Another group of settlers from Kiryat Arba uprooted 150 seedlings owned by the citizen Atta Jaber, after attacking him and his family members.

Meanwhile, the occupation forces demolished on Tuesday in the town of Yatta, in the southern West Bank district of al-Khalil, a Palestinian agricultural facility owned by the citizen Fadl Khatib, then arrested his two sons, Rateb Jabour coordinator of the Popular Committee against settlement in Yatta said.
