On Sunday, several fanatic Israeli colonists, illegally squatting on Palestinian lands, invaded Palestinian farmlands in Khirbat Tana village, east of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, and sprayed them with chemical toxins.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian Authority official who monitors Israel’s colonialist activities in northern West Bank, said the Israeli assailants came from Itamar illegal colony, which was built on stolen Palestinian lands.

Daghlas added that the colonists attacked many farmers before forcing them away, and sprayed chemical toxins on their lands.

The attack is part of constant attempts to illegally occupy more Palestinian lands to expand the colonies and outposts.

In related news, several fanatic illegal Israeli colonists invaded a Palestinian olive orchard near Salfit, in central West Bank, and cut more than thirty saplings, in addition to stealing equipment.

Israel’s colonies in the occupied West Bank, including in and around Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention in addition to various United Nations resolutions.
