Israeli settlers set up mobile homes near Nablus, a prelude to building an illegal settlement

NABLUS, Tuesday, October 6, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers today evening installed mobile homes and an animal barn in Beit Dajan to the east of Nablus, in the northern occupied West Bank, which is usually a prelude to building a new illegal settlement, according to a local activist.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors Israeli settlement activities in the north of the West Bank, told WAFA that for the last few days, the northeastern part of Beit Dajan lands has been witnessing sweeping operations and the paving of roads, starting from the outskirts of the illegal Israeli settlement of Hamra, in the Jordan Valley, all the way to Beit Dajan.

He warned of Israel’s intentions to take over more land for the benefit of building a new settlement outpost in the area.

According to local sources, settlers today extended water lines to supply the new outpost with water from the Alon Moriah illegal Israeli settlement near the village, in addition to constructing a several kilometers long road, which caused damages and the confiscation of hundreds of dunums of Palestinian residents’ lands.
