Israeli military continues to escort settlers invading Khirbet Susiya to harass residents
On 2 August 2020, at around 2:00 P.M., about 15 Israeli settlers escorted by four soldiers once again invaded the Palestinian community of Khirbet Susiya in the South Hebron Hills and roamed its land as they pleased. About eight residents of the community tried drive the settlers out, but the soldiers – with four more soldiers who arrived as backup – refused to remove them and remained there with the settlers until nightfall.
The military expelled the residents of Khirbet Susiya from their village in 1986 and they relocated to their farmland. Since then, the military and settlers have been trying to drive them out of there, too.
