BETHLEHEM, (PIC)-- A group of Jewish settlers seized control of a Palestinian cultivated land lot in Khader town, south of Bethlehem, on Saturday.

Ahmed Salah, the coordinator of the village’s committee against the wall and settlement, said that settlers from Eliezer settlement, established on Khader land, started to farm the confiscated land lot.

He said that the settlers planted olive seedlings and installed a big rock and clay jugs on part of the land as an area for offering their religious rituals.

Salah recalled that Jewish settlers had seized control of five dunums in that same area named Khilat Al-Qut and planted olives in it after installing a two kilometers long irrigation network.
