Yesterday private Israeli bulldozers arrived in the village of Al Ma’sara in the West Bank
and destroyed a section of farm land belonging to the Brijia family,
uprooting five grape trees and an abundance of wheat.
The bulldozers who were accompanied by Israeli military jeeps belonged to an electrical company
who were installing an underground cable to provide electricity to the nearby illegal settlement of Efrat.
The family of farmers,
who have legally owned the land since 1964
had been given no prior warning of the destruction
and neither the workers nor the army could provide any paperwork when asked.
This latest destruction of property is a sad blow to a family who have already lost four dunums of their land
to illegal Israeli construction …
