Israeli settlers set up a new illegal outpost in a West Bank village near Ramallah

Israeli settlers today set up a new illegal outpost on land belonging to the village of Obwein, north of Ramallah, said a local official.

Mayor of Obwein, Naji Hamad, told that settlers set up four caravans on privately-owned Palestinian land between Obwein, Jaljilia, and Sinjil villages, which is usually a prelude to building a new illegal settlement.

He said that the land where the outpost has been set up belongs to local residents who own official deeds proving ownership of the land.
