Village council head Mustafa Al-Abushi told LRC reporter:

“The targeted land owned by farmers from Khirbet Jubara and surrounding villages, the plots were cultivated with a variety of crops such as wheat and lentil, and provided a sub side source of income for several families, but after the construction of the apartheid wall between 2000-2002 farmers became exposed to Israeli restrictions under claims that their plots are adjacent to the apartheid wall, Israeli troops completely destroyed the crop several times. With continuous pressure, the occupation authorities dismantled part of the apartheid wall in 2013 , which also caused harm to vast areas of lands that the occupation now claim are government properties.”
