Illegal settlements: Israel starts constructing road in Hebron

There are also proposals to build a Jewish neighbourhood in the city’s market.

Israeli bulldozers have started levelling some 40 hectares (approximately 99 acres) of Palestinian-owned land north of Hebron.

They are building a bypass road connecting the illegal settlements of Hebron to Jerusalem.

The completed road will make it impossible for Palestinian farmers to reach their land on the other side.
