NABLUS, Monday, April 12, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers, accompanied by heavy machinery, leveled around 15 dunums of land in the village of Jaloud, south of Nablus, according to a local activist.
Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors Israeli colonial settlement activities in the northern West Bank, said settlers from a nearby illegal settlement, bulldozed around 15 dunums of land planted with wheat in the village of Jaloud, in an apparent prelude to take over the area for the benefit of settlement expansion.
Settlers also stole large amounts of nutrient-rich red soil.
Settler violence against Palestinians and their property is routine in the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli authorities.
Settlers‘ violence includes property and mosque arsons, stone-throwing, uprooting of crops and olive trees, attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.
There are over 700,000 Israeli settlers living in colonial settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
