Israeli settlers razed several Palestinian lands in Silwan town, northwest of occupied Jerusalem, and seized others in Jordan Valley.
Palestinian local sources reported that settlers razed 255-square-meter lands in favor of constructing a settlement outpost in the area.
Media sources shared a video documenting the moments when Israeli settlers razed several Palestinian olive trees in the land.
In a related development, groups of Israeli settlers erected a fence around the agricultural land in the Ahmir area, which was seized by settlers 8 months ago in the Jordan Valley.
Israeli settlers and forces, aiming at seizing the whole area, systematically carried out attacks against the Palestinian lands in Jordan Valley.
The Jordan Valley’s lands, threatened with annexation by the Israeli new government, comprise a third of the occupied West Bank.
Israeli new government, led by Benjamin Netanyahu, has settlement expansion on the list of its main priorities as it seeks to take over as many Palestinian lands as possible.
About 600,000 Israeli settlers in over 230 illegal settlements built since 1967. Israeli occupation officially took over the Palestinian lands in the West Bank and Jerusalem in 1967.
According to UN resolutions, Israel’s settlement activity constitutes a “flagrant violation” of international law and has “no legal validity”
