A group of fanatic illegal Israeli colonists installed, on Tuesday night, an outpost on Palestinian lands, owned by residents of Beita, Yitma, and Qabalan towns, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official who monitors Israel’s colonialist activities in northern West Bank, said the colonists benefited from the strict Israeli military siege on Nablus, especially in the southern countryside, and installed several mobile homes, in addition to infrastructure work, on Palestinian lands.

He added that the outpost was installed in Sbeih Mountain which has been subject to frequent Israeli violations over the last several years, including attempts to illegally annex Palestinian lands to build new colonies.

Daghlas also said that many colonists burnt, earlier on Tuesday evening, Palestinian agricultural lands in Burin village, south of Nablus, in addition to hurling stones and attacking Palestinians on the Ramallah-Nablus roads, causing damage.

It is worth mentioning that, on Tuesday, the Israeli government approved a law allowing the retroactive “legalizing” colonialist outposts that were installed by the colonists on Palestinian lands in the West Bank.
