HEBRON, Monday, August 31, 2020 (WAFA) – Palestinians today stopped Israeli settlers from taking over their lands in the village of Birin, to the east of the occupied southern West Bank city of Hebron, according to local residents.

The told WAFA that settlers from the illegal Israeli settlement of Kiryat Arba attempted to set up tents on Palestinian-owned lands in the village in order to take it over but were forced to flee the area after the landowners discovered them and kicked them out.

They said that this was not the first time settlers attempt to steal Palestinian lands by setting illegal structures on them in order to start an outpost that would grow into a settlement, noting that the landowners have legal deeds proving ownership of the land.
