NABLUS, Tuesday, January 26, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli bulldozers continued today to raze Palestinian-owned lands in the village of al-Lubban al-Sharqiya, south of the occupied northern West Bank city of Nablus, in order to expand an illegal Israeli favor of building settlement, local sources said.

They 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.
