Israel Razes Land, Demolishes Wells west of Hebron

HEBRON, May 6, 2013 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Monday razed tens of dunums adjacent to the Apartheid Wall west of Hebron, demolished two wells and destroyed the power network, said local sources.

Coordinator of the Popular Committee Against the Wall and settlement activity in the town of Beit Ula Issa al-A’mli told WAFA that Israeli bulldozers razed about 30 dunums of agricultural land and uprooted 2000 Olive, almond and grape trees.

He said bulldozers demolished two water wells, razed land while Israeli soldiers prevented farmers from attending to their land.

Beit Ula Mayor Muhammad al-A’mli said that soldiers accompanied by bulldozers destroyed the power unit which provides the area with electricity.

5. You can raze a building.

How do you raze land?

Rather like saying since you can build a building, you can build land.

Perhaps they're trying for shorthand: "razed all the buildings on 30 dunums"? Perhaps "cleared 30 dunums"?

As it is, it sounds like they're enlarging the Dead Sea.

Israeli bulldozers razed about 30 dunums of agricultural land and uprooted 2000 Olive, almond and grape trees.
