NABLUS, Tuesday, January 15, 2019 (WAFA) - Israeli settlers bulldozed on Tuesday 30 dunums of Palestinian land separated by the apartheid wall Israel has built in the West Bank in the area of Khirbet Yanoon, south of the city of Nablus in the north of the occupied West Bank, according to local sources.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors Israeli settlement activities in the north of the West Bank, told WAFA that the setters razed the land in order to plant it and eventually seize it, adding that this land belongs to citizens who have been forbidden from accessing it since 2006 when Israel built the apartheid wall.

He noted that Yanoon lost around 85% of its lands due to settlers‘ practices, adding that it is surrounded by five illegal settlement outposts.
