Palestine News & Info Agency - WAFA 
BETHLEHEM, November 24, 2012 (WAFA) - Israeli forces Saturday razed agricultural land near Bethlehem apparently to expand an illegal settlement, according to an activist.
Coordinator of the Popular Committee against Settlements and the Apartheid Wall in al-Khader, Ahmad Salah, told WAFA that Israeli soldiers accompanied by bulldozers razed Palestinian land with an aim to expand the settlement of Danial, built on land belonging to the town of al-Khader, west of Bethlehem.
He said Israeli soldiers have also closed with mounds of dirt and big rocks a number of roads in the area preventing residents from accessing them.
