Days of Palestine - Nablus

Israeli occupation settlers Thursday razed large tracts of Palestinian-owned land in Jalud village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, in order to expand their illegal settlement, according to a local source.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Bank, said settler bulldozers were seen this morning leveling large tracts of land that belong to Jalud villagers to expand the nearby illegal Israeli colonial settlement of Shvut Rachel.
