Coordinator of Solidarity Movement for Free Palestine in Burin, Ghassan al-Najjar, reportedly said that the military and settlers of Bracha colonial settlement attacked the workers during the construction of agricultural roads near Almnatir neighborhood, in Burin, where clashes occurred in the place.

According to the Al Ray report, settlers threw stones at the workers and their bulldozer, while troops fired tear gas at youth who came to the location after the breakup of the clashes, al-Najjar stated.


He pointed out that an Israeli civil administration officer had threatened the workers to confiscate the bulldozer if they should continue constructing the roads near the settlement.
