A group of extremist Israeli colonists invaded, Saturday, Palestinian lands close to Elon Moreh colony that was illegally built on Palestinian property, and started bulldozing large areas.

Ghassan Daghlas, the Palestinian Authority official in charge of monitoring Israeli settlement policies in the occupied territories, said the settlers bulldozed and uprooted large areas of lands belonging to residents from Deir al-Hatab town, east of Nablus.

He added that the invaded and bulldozed lands are in Ras al-Ein , extending across large areas of farmlands and orchards, only two kilometers away from Elon Moreh illegal colony.

The official also stated that the uprooting and bulldozing of the Palestinian lands aims at building a new illegally colonialist outpost.
