NABLUS (Ma’an) – Israeli forces started a far-reaching campaign leveling private Palestinian lands in the northern Jordan Valley, local residents told Ma'an.
A member of a local tribal committee Abdul-Latif Ishtayya said that more than 40 military vehicles escorted dozens of settlers who brought bulldozers and started to level private Palestinian lands in Beit Hassan neighborhood.
The assaulted area, he added, includes more than 700 acres of private land belonging to the al-Masri family.
Ishtayya said settlers are likely to occupy the area and establish a new settlement.
