Illegal Israeli colonizers established, on Monday, a new settlement outpost on Palestinian-owned lands, and destroyed a water network, near the northern West Bank city of Nablus, according to a local official.

South of Nablus, Israeli settlers erected a number of caravans on the lands of Burin village, near the illegal “Yitzhar” colony, built on expropriated Palestinian land.

According to the official who monitors Israeli violations and colonialist activities in northern West Bank, Ghassan Daghlas, Israeli colonizers erected mobile homes on Burin village lands, near the “Yitzhar” settlement.

Daghlas added that this action is a scheme to take over more Palestinian land for the exclusive benefit of settlers and the expansion of the existing colony.

Meanwhile, another group of settlers stormed Khirbet Tana village, which is part of the town of Beit Furik, southeast of Nablus, and damaged water pipelines that supply water to Palestinians in the area.

Ghassan Daghlas said that illegal Israeli colonists invaded the village and destroyed water pipelines measuring two kilometers in length, adding that this is the seventh time that settlers have destroyed the same pipeline.
