Settlers set up mobile homes on Palestinian land south of Hebron

HEBRON, Saturday, June 5, 2021 (WAFA) – Illegal Israeli settlers set up four mobile homes today on a land belonging to the village of Kherbet Zanouta, near the town of ad-Dhahiriya in the occupied West Bank province of Hebron, according to local sources.

Illegal Israeli settlers from the so-called Hilltop Youth organization, escorted by the occupation army, broke into the land in the early morning hours and proceeded to install the four mobile homes in an apparent attempt to establish a new colonial outpost.

The land where the settlers set up the caravans belongs to the Palestinian families of Makharzeh and Jabbarin.

The international community regards all settlements built on land occupied since June 1967 as illegal under international law and calls on Israel to remove them.

Between 500,000 and 700,000 Israeli settlers live in Jewish-only colonial settlements across occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank in violation of international conventions.
