Mar 6 2014 / 7:13 pm

IMEMC, 3/6/14 – Israeli authorities razed a land near Solomon’s Pools, in the village of Ertas, south of Bethlehem.

Last week, Israeli authorities evacuated a military watchtower that was built on the land, to return yesterday and start razing the 102 dunums of Palestinian land, belonging to Abu Sway family, the PNN has reported.

In a different context, Israeli occupation forces served, on Thursday, residents in Ethna village, west of Hebron, with notices to stop construction on their lands.

Mayor of Ethna municipality, Hashem al-Tumaizi, said that the village is always exposed to Israeli demolitions and harassments, adding that the policy which is implemented by the Israeli authorities aims at deporting residents from their homes.

Al-Tumaizi called on the governmental institutions and international community to protect and support these areas.
