Occupied West Bank (QNN)- Israeli occupation bulldozers continued today to raze Palestinian-owned lands in the al-Lubban al-Sharqiya village, south of Nablus in the occupied West Bank, in order to expand an illegal Israeli favor of building settlement, WAFA reported.
Local sources told WAFA that the Israeli bulldozers have been racing against time in levelling a nearby mountain and other areas in the vicinity of the illegal settlement of Eli aiming at expanding the settlement by adding more housing units to it.
To be noted, ‘Israel’ has recently created new neighborhoods in the southern part of the settlement at the expense of Palestinian lands in the village, while razing other areas in favor of expanding the settlements’ gas stations located at the main Ramallah-Nablus road.
There are over 700,000 Israeli settlers living in illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem in violation of international law, particularly the Fourth Geneva Convention.
