The owner told LRC the following:

“Recently, our plot have been witnessing raids by Israeli illegal colonists and forces, it is obviously that they are planning to take over the land for the expansion of Revava colony. In 1985, colonists took over the same plot, so we filed an objection to the Israeli Court, and we managed to get them to evict the plot, and now as colonization is perpetuating in the West Bank , they came back to try to take over the plot once again.”
