Ramallah, A group of extremist settlers, on Tuesday, razed 24 donums of the Palestinian-owned land adjacent to the so-called "Kiryat Arba" settlement east of Hebron, south of the occupied West Bank, according to a Palestinian source.

Head of Anti-Settlements Committee in Hebron, Aref Jaber, said in a statement that settlers, accompanied by Israeli forces, drove their heavy vehicles and razed Palestinian-owned lands in the area to expand their illegal settlement.

"Palestinian land owners filed a number of complaints to the Israeli courts along with their "title deeds" dating back to the Othman times as well as other Palestinian and Israeli documents which prove their ownership of the land, " the statement added.
