The occupation state razes lands near Tulkarm

Israeli occupation bulldozers embarked today on razing Palestinian-owned lands, under the pretext of opening a road, near the village of Shufa, southeast of the occupied West Bank city of Tulkarm, local sources said.
Tahseen Hamed, a local activist, told WAFA that seven bulldozers are currently working on razing the aforementioned area, planted with olive and almond trees, under the pretext of opening a road, which is most likely going to serve Israeli settlers exclusively.
He added that the ownership of the lands belongs to Palestinian families from the village, who have legal and official documents proving their ownership, adding that the area is among hundreds of dunums of land in the Tulkarm Governorate slated for confiscation by the Israeli occupation authorities.
