Israeli settlers raze Palestinian lands in Burin

April 4, 2019 1:00 P.M. (Updated: April 4, 2019 4:57 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Several bulldozers, owned by Israeli settlers, razed and leveled Palestinian lands in the Burin village, in the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus, on Thursday morning.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that several bulldozers, owned by Israeli settlers from the nearby illegal Israeli settlement of Yitzhar, razed and leveled lands in the Karm Abu Salim area of the village.

Daghlas added that settlers plan to expand the Yitzhar settlement from the Burin village side.

The razed lands are planted with fruitful trees that belong to several locals.

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.
