Israeli bulldozers

BETHLEHEM, 16 August (IPS) - Israeli forces began
Wednesday to bulldoze hundreds of trees on land owned by a
Catholic convent near the city of Beit Jala near
Bethlehem. This section of forest is being razed,
according to Israeli plans, to complete a section of the
separation wall, which continues to carve the West Bank
into pieces. Near the convent, the Israeli settlement
colonies of Gilo and Har Gilo, behind the wall on
Palestinian lands, continue to expand over the rocky
hillsides. When this section of the wall is completed,
several villages will be separated from each other and the
greater Bethlehem area.
