Israeli Settlers Seize 150 Dunums of Palestinian Land

S.K | DOP -

Israeli settlers plowed Sunday, December 5, 2022 vast areas of land belonging to Palestinian residents in the northern Jordan Valley area, according to local activist Aref Daraghmeh.

The activist said that a group of Israeli settlers plowed around 150 dunums of land owned by Palestinian residents of Tubas in preparation for planting it in what appears to be an apparent prelude to taking over the land.

The establishment of settlements on the West Bank violates international humanitarian law, which establishes the principles applied during war and occupation. Moreover, the settlements lead to the infringement of international human rights law according to the Israeli information center for human rights in occupied territories, B’Tselem.
