On Tuesday night, only 24 hours after the Israeli parliament of the Knesset gave colonial settlers the green light to seize private West Bank Palestinian land, settlers razed lands that belong to Palestinians in the village of Jaloud, south of Nablus in the occupied West Bank.

Ghassan Daghlas, a local official who monitors settlement activity, told WAFA correspondence that settlers entered the area during the night hours and razed around 15,000 square meters.

Jaloud is surrounded by three settlement outposts; Ahiya, Aish Kodesh and ‘Adi Ad.

Earlier, settlers had seized Palestinian land in the village of Madama, to the south of Nablus, and planted it with grape seedlings after seizing a water well in the area.
