“Israel” to expand illegal settlements in Nablus

Israeli bulldozers on Tuesday embarked on leveling lands in southern Nablus to expand the illegal settlements of Shilo and Shvut Rachel.

Local official Ghassan Daghlas said that settlers started to carry out large-scale bulldozing activities on Palestinian lands in Jalud village to build more housing units as part of a plan to expand the settlements of Shilo and Shvut Rachel.

Such development has taken place despite an Israeli court decision issued last year ordering a halt to all construction and expansion activities in the area, Daghlas affirmed.

He added that the Israeli higher court of justice are still studying an objection to the plan filed by the municipal councils of Jalud and Qaryut villages, where vast tracts of lands were annexed by Israel to expand the settlements.
