NABLUS, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) served demolition notices to a number of citizens in Jaftalk village in the northern Jordan Valley on Wednesday and told them to leave the area.

Eyewitnesses said that the destruction threat covered six installations including homes and cattle pens, adding that the act fell in line with plans to confiscate the village’s land.

Jaftalk villagers live a primitive life as they are deprived of water and electricity services by the Israeli occupation authority, which also prevents them from building forcing the citizens to live in houses made of tin and plastic.

In Nablus district, IOF troops stormed a school south of the city, the school’s headmaster reported, adding that a number of settlers were accompanying the IOF.

He said that an IOF armored vehicle rammed into the school’s main gate. The soldiers then climbed to its rooftop to protect settlers who were visiting a nearby shrine.

Meanwhile, tens of settlers from the Shilo settlement south of Nablus seized by force 25 dunums of Qaryut village land and blocked villagers from approaching it.

Witnesses said that the settlers ploughed and planted the land under the protection of IOF soldiers on Wednesday.
