NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli bulldozers on Sunday leveled private Palestinian land in Nablus in order to enlarge an illegal settlement outpost, a Palestinian Authority official said.
Ghassan Daghlas told Ma'an that Israeli forces dug up vast tracts of land surrounding Einabus village to enlarge an outpost known as Hill 782.
Settlers destroyed dozens of olive trees to illegally establish the outpost.
Over 500,000 Jewish settlers live on Palestinian territory seized in 1967.
