NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers on Thursday bulldozed private Palestinian lands near the northern West Bank village of Jalud south of Nablus in order to expand an illegal settlement outpost, a Palestinian Authority official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, a PA official who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that settlers from the Shvut Rachel outpost had decided to expand their illegal settlement at the expense of nearby private Palestinian landowners.

The fields that were leveled belong to Ahmad Ibrahim Hajj Muhammad, he added.

Daghlas said that the Israeli government had granted the settlers construction licenses.

Jalud is located directly beside a number of notoriously violent Jewish outposts and settlements, and hundreds of acres of its agricultural lands have been confiscated by Israeli authorities for their construction.

Settlers regularly attack the village, burning cars and uprooting olive trees, and in January locals captured a group of marauding settler youth before turning them over to security forces.

In 2013, there were 399 incidents of settler violence against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

Over 90 percent of investigations into settler violence by Israeli police fail to lead to an indictment.

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 question is HOW MUCH MORE OF THIS,is the PA or ANY Palestinian faction, going to tolerate? Palestinians KNOW the aim of Zionism is to swallow up ALL Palestine(at least)into a Jewish-only apartheid state regardless of what international laws(made by the lawless)stipulate.Colonial US,the ONLY nation to drop 2 atom bombs,w/out need,on massive civilian populations.Don't look to Israel's patron,USG,to help you,Palestine.So,what will U DO,B4 all Palestine is gone? Walk passively into the camps?

Mel - I can tell you how much more - until Israel fully develop West bank are C and part of the west bank area B, which are under full Israeli control per Oslo accords- last solution agreed by both sides of conflict. and of cause it will leave Gaza and west bank area A and may be some part of west bank area B for "future palestinian state". That is how much more.

#1 Your people need to you to help the thousands of Palestinians, trapped in the Syrian towns that are 'slowly dying'. And it nothing but nothing to do with the sole Jewish State of Israel. It has everything to do with Muslims killing Muslims due to tribal differences.

To Brian #4: 'Your people need to you to help the thousands of Palestinians, trapped in the Syrian towns that are 'slowly dying'. And it nothing but nothing to do with the sole Jewish State of Israel.' Nope. Those Palestinians being in Syria has nothing to do with the creation of Israel at all. No sirree. No connection there whatsoever.

The Israelis had nothing to do with the displacement of thousands of Palestinians who were forced to flee into neighboring countries? That's news to me. Must have up and left their land to go live in a refugee camp by choice.
