SALFIT, (PIC)– Jewish settlers started on Sunday to bulldoze vast areas of Deir Sama’an in Kufr Al-Dik village west of Salfit, which is famous for its archeological sites.

Eyewitnesses reported that the area is strategic and fertile and is rich in Roman relics, describing it as one of the most important archeological sites in Salfit district.

The inhabitants said that they could not enter that area for the past eight years after the establishment of a settlement outpost near it.

Kufr Al-Dik is known for its Roman and Byzantine relics such as churches and monasteries, mostly built in the Byzantine era as they served as rest houses for pilgrims coming from Constantinople to visit Jerusalem and Bethlehem.
