Ahmad Salah, coordinator of the Popular Committee against the Wall and Settlements in al-Khader, said that the settlers demolished the barn, located in Ein al-Qassis area, west of al-Khader.

The barn is more than 100 years old, and belongs to resident Riyadh Daoud Salah.

It is located close to both the Daniel illegitimate settlement andthe Boaz illegal settlement outpost, the Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) has reported.

Salah said that Palestinian lands and property close to Israelís illegal settlements are subject to ongoing attacks by settlers.

The attacks include demolishing and destroying hothouses, agricultural buildings, cutting and uprooting trees, in addition to flooding Palestinian orchards and lands with sewage.

Salah said that the settlers are trying to remove Palestinians from their lands, in order to build and expand their illegitimate settlements and outposts.
