Resident Mohammad Amro told the Palestinian information center that army bulldozers uprooted trees and farmlands in order to expand a military base located at the top of Musharraf Mountain, south of Hebron.

Amro added that the army illegally confiscated the private Palestinian lands, installed a monitoring tower, and launched a surveillance balloon to monitor the area from the sky.
Earlier, the army destroyed pools built dozens of years ago in order to collect rain water to be used in agriculture in the area, known of its fertile soil.

The army claimed that the pools “jeopardize the security of the soldiers based at a nearby military camp.
