Occupied West Bank (QNN)- Israeli authorities on Sunday expanded a settlement road that connects the illegal settlements of Beitar Illit and Giv’ot, which are both built on land stolen from Nahhalin village in western Bethlehem.
The deputy Mayor of Nahhalin, Hani Fannoun, said ten meters will be added to the width of the road and two kilometers will be added to its length, separating nearly 3,000 dunums and preventing Palestinians from reaching them.
Fannoun noted that the area has been a target to settlers’ repeated attacks, who pumped sewage water to it, causing crops to be damaged.
The settlers also grabbed hundreds of dunums in the area.
In the same vein, Israeli authorities ordered a Palestinian citizen from Al Kader village in Bethlehem to evacuate his 6-dunum agricultural land.
The occupation state has also issued demolition orders to several residential and agricultural structures in Yatta in southern Hebron and Bruqin in western Salfit.
Local sources said Israeli forces took photos for the structures and ordered to cease the construction in them.
The Israeli army also ordered to cease the construction of an agricultural structure and a water well in western Salfit.
