JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli troops erected three military tents near the main road of the northern West Bank town of Yabad on Tuesday morning.

Eyewitnesses told a Ma'an reporter that they saw three military tents on Palestinian olive trees near the main road between Jenin and Tulkarem.

Large numbers of Israeli soldiers deployed in the area, they added.

Locals said that they believe the Israeli military activity was in response to an attack with stones at an Israeli settler's vehicle traveling on the main road. The vehicle's windshield was smashed as a result of the attack.

In response, Israeli forces had threatened to occupy local houses if stone throwers continue to attack Israeli vehicles.

More than 500,000 Israeli settlers live in settlements across the West Bank and East Jerusalem, in contravention of international law.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

The only internationally recognised document about the area is the Sevres Treaty that gives mandate to United Kingdom over Palestine (the area including the states of Israel and Jordan) to organise in this territory a Homeland for the Jews. Any other document, except the peace treaties signed with Egypt and Jordan are not binding. So there are no Palestinian territories. Come to a peace agreement, sign a peace treaty and there will be one. All is in your hands, but don't complain if you fail !

#1 Henri- this is nonsensical. The Mandate did not give any land to any Jew.The Balfour declaration said that Jews should have a "homeland" in Palestine, which was not to disadvantage any locals. Israel was "created" unilaterally, and given admission to the UN (res. 273) on the promise to abide by UN Res. 194 - read the resolutions - won't take long. Israel immediately repudiated that promise. So I suggest you read a bit more history and international law before you go into print on the subject

@#3: Try reasing "Mandate for Palestine,"then simply look up the definition of "Class A Mandate."100% of the land was legally allocated to Jews with Zionists ad representatives by the League of Nations. Quoting the UN over a General Assembly Resolution is what is non-sensical.
