“Kharsina” colony was built in the 70s  of the last century on Al Bouira land as a new segment of Kiriyat Araba’ in Hebron . About three years ago, Kharsina colonists established a new outpost at a hilltop outside the borders of the colony as they brought a mobile home and put it at the location.

Palestinian citizen Ibrahim Eida owns a 3 dunums plot , about one year ago Eida with the help of The Ministry of Agriculture managed to plant 150 olive and grapes saplings in the plot and surrounded it with retaining walls, hoping to protect it from colonial schemes.

Eida told LRC the following:

 “On May 22nd 2020, I received a phone call from one of my neighbors , telling me that four colonists invaded my land and  uprooted  the grape saplings. I, also, received another call on June 3rd 2020, in which I was informed that a settler named “Yossi” drove his tractor into my land and destroyed the retaining walls surrounding it. As a result of these attacks, 40 grape saplings were uprooted and 70 m long retaining wall was destroyed”.
