Zionist settlers backed by Israeli occupation forces (IOF) and military bulldozers damaged Palestinian farmland over a mountain slope in Nahalin village, Bethlehem district, local sources reported.
They said that tens of settlers were blocking farmers from approaching their land and were uprooting citrus, almond, and olive trees in the area.
The sources said that the settlers wish to expand their settlements in the vicinity of Nahalin. The settlements surround the village from the four corners.
Meanwhile, IOF troops rounded up 10 Palestinian citizens on Monday for suspicion of involvement in attacks against Israeli targets.
The Hebrew daily Yediot Ahronot said on its website that the detainees were arrested in the districts of Jenin, Qalqilia, Ramallah, Bethlehem, and Al-Khalil.
