Occupation forces prevent farmer from reclaiming own land

SALFIT, Saturday, March 27, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation forces and colonial settlers today prevented a Palestinian farmer from conducting maintenance works in his own land, located outside the village of Kifl Hares, near the town of Saflit in the occupied West Bank.

Jaser al-Qaq, a Palestinian citizen and farmer from Kifl Hares, told WAFA that Israeli occupation soldiers and fanatic settlers forced a number of workers that he hired for the gardening and maintenance works to leave his land.

He said Israeli occupation authorities recently set up a new settlement outpost near his land, apparently in a prelude to establish a new colonial settlement in the area.

Over 700,000 Israeli settlers live in Jewish-only colonial settlements across the West Bank in violation of international law, particularly the Fourth Geneva Convention which expressly bans the relocation of the occupying nation's civilian population to the land of the occupied.
