Israeli soldiers attack Palestinian technicians while surveying land in south of West Bank

HEBRON, Saturday, Israeli soldiers today attacked a team of Palestinian technicians from the Land Settlement Authority while they were surveying land in Masafer Yatta in the south of the occupied West Bank, according to a local activist.

Fouad al-Imour, from the Protection and Steadfastness Committee in Masafer Yatta and the South Hebron Hills, told WAFA that soldiers fired teargas canisters at the surveyors while they were working on land near the illegal Avigal settlement built on Palestinian land in Umm al-Shaqhan area, east of Yatta.

He said the staff suffered from teargas suffocation and were treated at the location.

Israel does not allow Palestinians to work in Area C of the occupied West Bank, which is under full Israeli military control.
