Israeli occupation forces, on Friday, razed a Palestinian-owned agricultural land in the village of Urif, south of Nablus, in the occupied West Bank, local sources said.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official who monitors settlement activities in the area, told WAFA that Israeli forces accompanied by bulldozers proceeded to raze an agricultural land near the main water tank of the village, in order to facilitate movement of illegal Jewish settlers from the neighboring settlement of Yitzhar.

He said the razing of the land will deny access of local Palestinian villagers to about 200 dunams of their own land in the village.

“Israeli forces and settlers are attempting to ‘impose a reality’ on Palestinian lands classified as Area B by razing and leveling a large area of land and preventing farmers from reaching their lands by placing dirt mounds to block the road,” Daghlas added.
