Bethlehem (In Palestine Today)- Two children have been poisoned while 400 grapevines were damaged in Al Khader in Bethlehem when Israeli settlers sprayed the vines with toxic pesticides on Friday.
The activist Ahmad Salah said that a group of settlers from the illegal settlement outpost of Sidi Boiz, which was built on the village’s confiscated lands, sprayed grapevines with toxic pesticides. 400 grapevines were damaged.
Salah added that the children Abdussalam Salah (2 years old) and Ahmad Salah (3 years old) have been poisoned after inhaling the pesticides. Both children were taken to a hospital.
The village has been a target of settlers’ attacks, who were trying to confiscate its lands in order to expand their settlement.
