Nablus (QNN)- Israeli bulldozers started this morning to expand the illegal settlement of Shevot Rahil, which was built on land confiscated from Jaloud village, according to WAFA.
Ghassan Daghlas, in charge of the Israeli settlements file in the north of the West Bank, said that the dredging operations are being carried out only a few hundreds of meters away from the school of Jaloud village.
He added that the new expansion works are based on a decision by the Israeli Minister of War Neftali Bennet, aiming at connecting the illegal settlements of Shevot Rahil and Shilo with other settlement outposts to the east.
The Palestinian village of Jaloud is surrounded and besieged by illegal settlements from three sides. The occupation state has grabbed most of its agricultural lands.
