The affected t9old LRC:

“We own a plot with a total area of 300 dunums east Qawawis village , that we’ve been cultivating for many years , the occupation authorities claimd that the plot belongs to the israeli government , but we hired a lawyer and a legal aid institution and we won the case. However , eventhough we proved that we own the plot , israeli colonists frequently raid our plot.

We started building retaining walls (500 m) around the plot to protect it from colonists who carry out daily assaults against us, but we were shocked on Wednesday when they destroyed the wall. The scene shows that colonists brought heavy mechaneries at night and ravaged both the wall and the plot.

In addition to destroying the wall, the land was planted with opnions , which was also damaged in the process, noting that Mitzpe Yaer colony was illegally built 100 m to the east from our plot, and parts o the lands where the colony was constructed used to be our farmlands.”

‘Awad filed several complaints to the israeli police, but nothing was done to stop the vicious assaults.
