Abdullah Obayya, the head of Yasuf Village Council, east of Salfit in central West Bank, stated that several illegal Israeli colonialist settlers, accompanied by soldiers, invaded Palestinian lands in the village, and installed tents.

Obayya stated that the colonists installed seven tents and mobile homes on the top of the al-Qarna mountain, in the eastern part of the village, and raised Israeli flags around the new illegal outpost.

He added that the area, which contains Palestinian olive orchards, faces the Tapuach Israeli colony, which was illegally built on private Palestinian lands.

The area around the invaded lands also contains several towers for the Jawwal Palestinian Cellular Communications Company.

There are five illegal Israeli colonies on Palestinian lands in Salfit governorate; Nehemia, Rahalim, Tapuah 1, Tapuah 2, and Ariel colonialist block.
