He reported that the expansion of the military camp and turning it into a settlement will lead to seizing more land of al-Khader Palestinian village, pointing out that only 20 settlers live in Ein Qusis settlement these days, but with the new infrastructure conditions tens of settlers will move to live in the settlement.

Salah noted that the decision to turn the Ein Qusis settlement, built since 2001 on an area of ​​300 acres of al-Khader village, came in light of the Israeli plan to turn 40 outposts and military camps to large “recognized” settlements.

Ratib Jabour, the coordinator of the Popular Committee Against settlements in Yatta stated that the occupation expanded Avijal outpost built on the Palestinian land near the village of Carmel eastern Yatta town, according to Quds press.

Jabour pointed out that the settlers added five caravans on Sunday after adding seven others two months ago.
