A group of illegal Israeli colonialist settlers invaded, Sunday, a privately-owned Palestinian land, east of Bethlehem, south of occupied Jerusalem in the West Bank, and installed a tent.

Local nonviolent activist, Mohammad al-Badan, said the colonists invaded the land in Wad Habayeb area, in the eastern part of Teqoua’ town, east of Bethlehem.

He added that the colonists installed a tent and started preparing for a new illegal outpost on the Palestinian lands.

The outpost is intended to block the Palestinians from entering their lands in the area.

In related news, Israeli soldiers confiscated a Palestinian tractor and denied many farmers access to their own lands, west of Salfit, in central West Bank.

The soldiers also confiscated a bulldozer, owned by a Palestinian from Burin village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, while working on building a greenhouse belonging to a local school.

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