SALFIT (Ma’an) – Israeli settlers have continued to bulldoze private Palestinian lands in several areas across Salfit district in the central West Bank, a Palestinian researcher said Sunday.

Khalid Maali, who monitors settler activities in Salfit, quoted Palestinian farmers as saying that bulldozers have been leveling lands near Revava settlement which is illegally built on the lands of the village of Deir Istiya in northwest Salfit.

Furthermore, bulldozers have been seen digging up private Palestinian lands near the Barqan settlement and industrial zone built on land of the Palestinian village of Haris.

Bulldozers, he added, have leveled about 5 acres in an area of Haris village known as “Khallat Habiba”.

The land belongs to Ali Dawood Soof, says Maali, and he said that the owners been denied access to their land despite the fact that they haven’t received any confiscation notice.

Maali highlighted that sewage water from the Israeli settlement of Ariel north of Salfit continued to flow into the ravines of Wadi al-Matwi and Wadi al-Beer polluting Palestinian groves.
