New Israeli settlement outpost in Nablus

Aug. 30, 2018 12:46 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 31, 2018 1:54 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A new illegal Israeli settlement outpost was set up, on Thursday, on Palestinian-owned lands belonging to the residents of the Qaryut village, in the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus.

A Palestinian official who monitors settlement activist in the northern West Bank, Ghassan Daghlas, said that the residents of Qaryut were shocked to find out on Thursday morning that Israeli settlers set up a new settlement outpost on their lands.

Daghlas said that Israeli settlers set up five caravans, which were stocked up with water and other supplies, in addition to construction material in preparation to set up more caravans.

Daghlas confirmed that the land is private Palestinian-owned land and is located between the two illegal Israeli settlements of Eli and Shilo.

Earlier this week, the Jerusalem District Court ruled that if Israeli settlers built a settlement on private Palestinian land with "good intentions" then it should not be removed. Therefore, allowing more Palestinian lands to be seized by Israeli settlers as they see fit.

Hanan Ashrawi, Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) Executive Committee Member, said that the court's ruling provides the Israeli settlers with further motivation "to steal the private property of Palestinian landowners throughout occupied Palestine without any curbs or accountability."
