Israeli occupation forces set up Thursday morning, June 22, six mobile homes “caravans” on the Palestinian lands of Al-Lubban Ash-Sharqiya town, south of occupied Nablus, on the road connecting the cities of Nablus and Ramallah.
Israeli bulldozers have razed land on the road south of Al-Lubban Ash-Sharqiya and Sinjil town, preparing for the establishment of an Israeli settlement outpost, local Palestinian sources reported.
The razed land is owned by the Palestinian citizens Musa Al-Abed Aweis, Abdel-Rahim Nubani, and Ahmed Mahmoud Aweis.
It is noteworthy that the area surrounding the eastern towns of Sinjil, Turmus Aya, and Al-Lubban Ash-Sharqiya is besieged by more than seven adjacent illegal Israeli settlement outposts on the hills of the three towns.
There are also three settlements established on Palestinian lands, “Eli”, “Ma’ale Levonah” and “Shilo”, thus forming a huge settlement bloc in the middle of the West Bank, separating its north and south.
The new far-right Israeli government coalition is pushing ahead with plans to establish and expand settlement units on Palestinian lands across the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem.
Last week, Israeli occupation informed the US administration of its intention to announce the approval of building at least 4,000 illegal settlement units across the occupied West Bank.
Over 650,000 Israeli settlers live currently in 164 illegal settlements and 124 outposts built on the stolen Palestinian lands of the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem.
