Israeli settlers set up mobile homes, raze lands in Nablus

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers set up mobile home and razed 15 dunams of Palestinian lands in southern Nablus in the northern occupied West Bank, on Sunday.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma’an that Israeli settlers set up 20 mobile homes in the Huwwara village to expand the illegal Israeli settlement of Yitzhar in the village’s southern side.

Daghlas added that Israeli settlers razed more than 15 dunams of Palestinian land in the Jalud village, pointing out that Israeli settlers installed a new water line in the area for settlement outposts and moved razed dirt to nearby outposts.

Since the occupation of the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, in 1967, between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis have moved into Israeli settlements in occupied Palestinian territory, in violation of international law.

The estimated 196 government recognized Israeli settlements scattered across the Palestinian territory are all considered illegal under international law.
