Eyewitnesses reported that Israeli bulldozers on Saturday morning razed Palestinian lands north of Bruqin town in Salfit province in favor of the expansion of Bruchin settlement.
They added that the industrial area of Ariel settlement is also being expanded in the western area of Bruqin at the expense of Palestinian farmlands.
Anti-settlement researcher Khalid Ma’ali said that the Israeli bulldozing operations are in full swing in different villages and towns of Salfit including the four industrial areas located to the north and west of the province.
Ma’ali stressed that Israel’s settlement expansion activity on occupied Palestinian territories is illegal under international humanitarian law.
