Please visit the links below to read a detailed account of how the Israeli army destroyed a complete fruit tree orchid in the village of Artas South of Bethlehem. This is the first step in destroying and illegally confiscating more land. For several days Palestinian, international and Israeli activists have been gathering at the site to protect this beautiful farm land that will be turned into a sewage dump for the near by settlements (not for security, not for protection, … but for sewage) … I cant say more.
