WEST BANK, (PIC)– The West Bank witnessed last week an Israeli frenzied campaign including seizure and confiscation of lands, in addition to a series of daily assaults on citizens, their homes, and their property.

The National Bureau for the Defense of Land revealed, in its weekly report, the Israeli ongoing demolition and accelerated seizure projects in the occupied West Bank.

In Jerusalem, a group of settlers tried to re-install the door on the southern entrance to the Ein Silwan under the protection of Israeli soldiers who closed Wadi Al-Hilwa Street.

In Bethlehem, a number of Israeli settlers set up dozens of mobile houses in the village of al-Khader and damaged a number of fruit trees where they dug a trench to create territorial contiguity between the Israeli outposts built on seized private Palestinian lands.

Moreover, IOF set up a military watchtower in the village of al-Khader near Bethlehem city.

In the Tubas area of the Jordan Valley, settlers seized nearly 50 dunums of land and began farming it. The land, which belongs to villagers, had previously been used by the Israeli army as tank emplacements.

In Al-Khalil, settlers from Susiya settlement seized five dunums of private Palestinian land near the town of Yatta. Settlers broke into the land and installed a power generator as part of plans to use the land for settlement expansion.

In addition Susiya and Maoun’s settlers uprooted olive trees and assaulted Palestinian houses in Yatta town southern Al-Khalil.

IOF bulldozed and damaged the link road connecting Om Safat and Alderat in Yatta south of Al-Khalil.

The Israeli occupation authorities began building a new section of its illegal apartheid wall in an area west of Masaha, a town west of Salfit governorate, where Israeli occupation forces closed the entrance of the area, preventing farmers from entering it to tend to their fields.

In Ramallah, three farmers from Sinjil village were injured in an attack by settlers while heading to their land. Meanwhile, violent clashes took place in Nabi Salah village between the villagers and Israeli settlers who tried to take over a water spring in the village.
