On Friday, a large group of Israeli colonists, illegally squatting on Palestinian lands invaded Khan al-Lubban archeological site, south of Nablus city, in northern West Bank.

Media sources said the colonists invaded Khan al-Lubban archeological site, south of the al-Lubban ash-Sharqiya village, south of Nablus.

They added that Israeli occupation soldiers accompanied the colonists during the invasion and prevented the Palestinians from entering the area.

It is worth mentioning that Khan al-Lubban is an archaeological site near the main Nablus-Ramallah road, and has been subject to escalating violations, especially over the past two months.

The colonists are not only trying to occupy the site, and establish an outpost, but are also trying to control its water spring.
