A group of illegal Israeli colonialist settlers, accompanied by many soldiers invaded, on Wednesday evening, the archeological area in al-Mas’udiyya, north of Nablus, in northern West Bank, and prevented the Palestinians from entering it.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official who monitors Israel’s illegal colonialist activities in northern West Bank, said dozens of colonists and soldiers invaded the archeological area, and its park, in al- Mas’udiyya.

He added that the invaded sites belong to Burqa Village Council, north of Nablus, and is subject to constant Israeli invasions and violations.

Such invasions are not only frequent but are also carried out to control the archeological area, and prevent the Palestinians from entering it.
