Israeli Colonizers Install Outpost, Expand Another, Near Hebron

Israeli colonizers, illegally squatting on stolen Palestinian lands, installed an outpost and expanded another, Sunday, in Khirbat Zannouta Palestinian village, south of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

Media sources said the colonizers brought mobile homes and started installing structures on lands, owned by the Palestinians from the families of Samamra, Abu Sharkh, and Jabarin.

They added that this outpost is the third to be installed on Palestinian lands in the same area this year, amidst the escalating Israeli attempts to build and expand the illegal colonies, built on stolen Palestinian lands in direct violation of International Law.

Fayez at-Till, the head of Zannouta Village Council, stated that dozens of colonists invaded the Palestinian lands, accompanied by many soldiers, and installed the outpost on twenty Dunams.

He added that the colonizers installed twenty mobile homes on the lands, near the illegal “Regional Council of Settlements,” in the southern area of Hebron.

The colonizers also expanded another illegal outpost, which was installed on nearby stolen Palestinian lands, owned by Abu Sharkh and Jabarin families.

“This is a profoundly serious escalation especially since it paves the way for the illegal annexation of hundreds of dunams of Palestinian lands in the area,” at-Till said, “It is all part of a plan by the Regional Council to expand the Industrial Zone and link the several colonies in the area with each other.”

The source added that an agreement has been reached ten days ago. ‘Israel’ pledged to the mediators that it will fulfill the agreement, however, it has not.

The agreement included the disbursement of Qatar’s grant and fulfill commitments related to the importation and exportation of goods. It also includes other Israeli commitments related to Gaza’s fishermen.

Dozens Israeli settlers break into Al-Aqsa Mosque, provoke worshipers

Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- Dozens Israeli settlers have broken into the courtyards of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in the occupied Jerusalem earlier on Sunday.

Pictures & Video| ‘Israel’ forces Palestinian family to self-demolish home in Jerusalem

Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- Israeli occupation authorities on Saturday forced a Palestinian family to self-demolish its own home in Jabal al-Mukabbir neighborhood in the occupied city of Jerusalem.

At the order of the Israeli occupation municipality, the family of Matar self-demolished its home in Jabal al-Mukabbir to avoid paying a fine in exorbitant demolition costs to the Israeli municipality (the staff and the police) if it carries out the demolition.

The family consists of 7 members, including the father, the mother, and their five children.

The family were seen emptying the contents of their homes in preparation for the demolition.

Using the pretext of illegal building, ‘Israel’ demolishes houses on a regular basis to restrict Palestinian expansion in occupied Jerusalem.

At the same time, the municipality and the occupation government built tens of thousands of housing units in illegal settlements in occupied Jerusalem for Jews with a goal to offset the demographic balance in favour of the Israeli settlers in the occupied city.

‘Israel’ has been moving its citizens into the occupied Jerusalem neighborhoods since the 1980s. This has resulted in numerous human rights violations, including the forced displacement of Palestinian residents.

Hundreds of Palestinian families are being threatened with forced displacement from their homes and home demolitions by illegal settler groups, fully supported by the Israeli government.

There are nearly 700,000 Israeli settlers living in 256 illegal settlements and outposts scattered across the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem. Israeli settlements are illegal under international law.
