[Tuesday, January 14, 2014] Dozens of Israeli settlers, protected by soldiers, took over a Palestinian-owned plot of land in an area east of the city of Hebron, and began planting it with olive trees on Tuesday, according to a local witness.
Rashid al-Tamimi, a resident of Hebron, told the Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) that dozens of settlers began farming a 150-dunum (37 acres) lot belonging to Palestinians as a prelude to taking it over, in order to expand a nearby illegal settlement.
