New settlement outpost in Nablus
New settlement outpost in Nablus
[ 23/02/2013 - 08:04 AM ]

NABLUS, (PIC)-- Jewish settlers from the Allon Moreh settlement set up a new settlement outpost on Palestinian land in Salem village to the east of Nablus.

Abdul Karim Hussein, the mayor of Salem village, said in a press release that the settlers had previously installed two mobile homes on the mountain of Ras Hazem.

He added that on Friday morning there were ten such mobile homes in an apparent attempt to set up a new settlement outpost.

Hussein said that Israeli bulldozers were leveling land in the vicinity of those caravans ruining olive trees in the process.

He said that the 400-dunum area of the mountain is owned by citizens in Salem village, who have documents to prove their ownership of the land.

The mayor said that settlers usually occupy a portion of Palestinian land to set up an outpost that steadily grows at the expense of nearby citizens’ land.
