Israeli settlers set fire Sunday morning, July 16, 2023, to the lands of Burin village, south of occupied Nablus.
The official in charge of the settlement file in the northern West Bank, Ghassan Douglas, stated that a group of Israeli settlers set fire to vast areas of lands planted with olives in the village of Burin, south of Nablus, preventing fire truck from reaching there.
Douglas added that Israeli settlers erected a “pergola” on the outskirts of the village, as there is a fear among Palestinian residents that this pergola will be the beginning of establishing another Israeli settlement outpost in the village.
According to latest Amnesty International reports, Israeli settlers have been violating Palestinians’ right of life, as Israeli forces and security guards have unlawfully killed and injured many Palestinian civilians including during protests against the confiscation of land and the construction of settlements.
It’s worth noting that more than 650,000 colonial settlers are distributed among 164 illegal settlements and 124 outposts built on the stolen lands of occupied West Bank and Jerusalem.
