Local sources on Tuesday said that the savage settlers destroyed 250 olive trees west of the village, which is adjacent to settlements, in a bid to prevent farmers from tending to their lands near those settlements.
Meanwhile, Israeli occupation forces (IOF) tightened security measures in and around Al-Khalil city.
Locals reported sudden barriers, storming campaigns, search of dozens of vehicles, and patrolling several nearby villages and firing shots and teargas at youngsters over the past 24 hours.
They mentioned in particular Beit Ummar village, which has been closed before civilian traffic in and out of it for the sixth day running.
