Israeli forces today ransacked and dismantled vegetable-selling stalls near Wadi Al-Khalil checkpoint, on the Hebron-Bersheeba road, according to Palestinian sources.
Israeli soldiers raided the stalls, which are used for selling vegetables, fruits, and other food items, and ordered their Palestinian owners to leave the area, before proceeding to dismantle them and destroy their content.

The dismantled stalls, besides being the main source of income for their owners, are also a preferred market for Palestinian workers who daily commute to Israel.
