Monday, Israeli Occupation settlers razed a road in the town of Tuqu'in Bethlehem, southeast of the occupied West Bank, as reported by the Palestinian news agency WAFA.
The head of the Tuqu' municipality Tayseer Abu Mefreh told WAFA that armed Israeli Occupation settlers raided the area with two bulldozers.
They razed a settler-only road in a land owned by the family Abu Hmeid, who have the legal paperwork to prove their ownership.
The owners of the land tried to fight off the Israeli Occupation settlers to stop them from razing the road, but they opened fire at them and tried to run them over, he said.
Abu Mefreh explained that Israeli Occupation settlers aim to seize hundreds of donums to expand an outpost surrounding the area built on Palestinian land.
