HEBRON, May 21, 2012 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Monday destroyed crops and confiscated irrigation equipment in al-Baqa’a, an area east of Hebron, according to local sources.

They told WAFA that Israeli forces accompanied by border guards, police and staff from Mekorot, Israel’s national water company, destroyed more than 13 dunums of agricultural land planted with vegetables and confiscated its irrigation equipment.

The area targeted by the Israelis is fertile agricultural land located not far from the illegal Jewish settlements Kiryat Arba and Kharseena. Israel wants the area’s Palestinian residents to leave it to eventually incorporate it into the nearby settlements.
