The responsible of Al-Ghoor file, Mutaz Bsharat, told a researcher from Land Research Center that the military trainings are conducted in synchronization with sheep reproduction season and winter and summer crops. This is to say that the occupation aims at causing huge damage and losses to strike the Palestinian presence in the area.
