Settlers set up a new settlement post near Awarta

NABLUS, (PIC)–  Jewish settlers started on Thursday bulldozing large areas of Palestinian land belonging to the villagers of Awarta to the south east of the northern West Bank city of Nablus to establish a new settlement outpost.

Eyewitnesses said that occupation bulldozers levelled areas of land to setup mobile homes left there more than a month ago by settlers in response to the murder of a settler family in nearby Itamar settlement which the occupation blamed on the Palestinians.

The setting up of this new settlement outpost is a new attempt by the occupation to impose a fait accompli on the ground confiscating more Palestinian land. The village of Awarta has so far lost 90% of its lands.
