JORDAN VALLEY, (PIC)– The residents of the Buqei’a settlement in the North Jordan Valley seized Palestinian land on Monday morning as part of their continued illegal expansion.
The land, 50 dunums, was promptly fenced and barricaded by the settlers who prevented the Palestinian owners from entering it.
Local sources recalled that whoever entered the mentioned land was being arrested in line with the ongoing scheme to gain full control over it.
Meanwhile, settlers seized on Monday morning a land in “Susia” area near the town of Yatta southern Al-Khalil.
Ratib Al-Jabour, the coordinator of the popular committees against settlements in Yatta, has explained that Jewish settlers of Susia settlement seized a land, 5 dunums, belonging to Hadar family.
Jabour noted that the settlers have installed a power generator in the land to pave the way for building a settlement outpost in the region.
On the other hand, settlers have destroyed agricultural lands and uprooted fruit trees belonging to a Palestinian farmer from the town of Khother, southern Bethlehem, in order to establish a road in the center of a land owned by Ibrahim Suleiman Sabih and his brothers, according to Hassan Sabih, a local municipality official.
Sabih told Quds Press that settlers of Ananias settlement are waging an attack campaign against the Palestinian lands in the town of Kother and its surrounding areas, where the fruit trees in Sabih’s land have been uprooted for the second time.
