Leave a comment

NABLUS (Ma’an) — Jewish settlers set up mobile homes on private land belonging to Palestinian farmers in the village of Jalud south of Nablus on Monday, a Palestinian Authority official said.Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement-related activities in the northern West Bank, told Ma’an that a group of settlers from the illegal outpost Adei Ad set up caravans on a hill in northern Jalud.

Daghlas said that the village has lost about 16,000 dunams (4,000 acres) of its farmland to Israeli settlements. The newly set up caravans, he said, mark a new round of land confiscation.

Last month, a group of settlers attacked a 37-year-old Palestinian man in Jalud. He was taken to hospital after they hit him over the head with an iron rod.

Since 1967, Israel has established over 150 settlements and some 100 outposts in the occupied West Bank, with a settler population of more than 500,000 across the West Bank and East Jerusalem, in contravention of international law.

Over 43 percent of land in the occupied West Bank is allocated to settlement local and regional councils.

In 2014, there were at least 329 incidents of settler violence against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank, according to the UN.
