It is reported that the dozers leveled 8 dunums without any previous warning. Shalaldeh said that they haven’t received any notice or military order of ravaging. People of the area fear that the occupation would establish a military watchtower on the ravaged lands.

Citizen Shalaldeh stated that the attacked parcel of land is part of 30 dunums he and his brothers own. He also pointed out that Israeli soldiers used to camp and conduct military training on the land every now and then.

It should be noted that the attacked location is founded nearby the road leading to Mitzad and Asfar colonies, which are established on confiscated lands from Sa'ir town. Noteworthy, the two colonies are reported to undergo expansion activities at the expense of Sa'ir lands.
