Israeli soldiers invaded, Monday, several areas in the northern West Bank governorate of Qalqilia, before handing the residents military orders halting the construction of two agricultural structures and bulldozed agricultural lands.
Mohammad Abu Sheikh, a Palestinian official who monitors Israel’s illegal colonialist activities in northern West Bank, said the soldiers invaded Nabi Elias village and handed Mustafa Taha an order to halt the construction of his agricultural facility.
He added that the soldiers also invaded Azzoun town, east of Qalqilia, and handed Abdul-Malek Fuad Rayyan a similar order.
In Jinsafut village, east of Qalqilia, the soldiers bulldozed and uprooted farmlands, owned by Morad Aref Bashir, in the Jabal ath-Thieb area, in the eastern part of the village.
The bulldozed lands in Jabal ath-Theeb are 1.5 Dunams, part of 50 Dunams owned by Bashir, and are threatening by the illegal Israeli annexation due to constant Israel attempts to expand the illegal Emmanuel colony, which was built on stolen Palestinian lands owned by the residents of Jinsafut, and Deir Istiya in the Qalqilia governorate.
All of Israel’s colonies in the occupied West Bank, including those in and around occupied East Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention in addition to various United Nations and Security Council resolutions. They also constitute war crimes under International Humanitarian Law.
