Illegal settlement expansion underway at cost of a northern West Bank village


JENIN, Tuesday, January 01, 2019 (WAFA) – The Israeli army razed land in Dhar al-Maleh village, southwest of Jenin in the north of the occupied West Bank, in order to expand an illegal Jewish settlement, the village‘s head of council Ahmad Khatib said on Tuesday.

He told WAFA that bulldozers started to work on 120 dunums of the village land and in the process destroyed a paved road as the military was working on expanding the illegal settlement of Shaked, built on expropriated village land.

He said the land in question was isolated from the rest of the village by the Israeli apartheid barrier, which made it difficult for land owners and village residents to reach it.
