Nazareth, (PIC)-- Israeli occupation forces (IOF) arrested three Palestinian farmers in Al-Khalil, dozens of workers in Haifa, and served demolition notices north of Sakhnin city on Saturday.

Sources in Beit Ummar village, north of Al-Khalil city, told the PIC reporter that the IOF soldiers with the help of Jewish settlers assaulted and detained three farmers, including two brothers, while tending to their land south of the village.

Meanwhile, Israeli police rounded up dozens of Palestinian workers from the West Bank in Haifa, witnesses told the PIC, adding that many of them were beaten in the process.

The sources said that at least 25 workers, mostly from Jenin, were captured today in construction workshops.

In another development, Israeli authorities served demolition notices to three inhabitants of Fakhikhira village, to the north of Sakhnin city, claiming they were built on land owned by the land of Israel department.

The citizens said that they own the land since the Ottoman era and they have papers to prove it, and charged the Israeli authorities of confiscating most of the village land in a bid to force the inhabitants to leave it and allow room for expanding a nearby Jewish settlement.
