In a move that frequently precedes illegally occupying Palestinian lands, several Israeli colonists invaded farmlands in Orif village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, and plowed them.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian Authority official who monitors Israel’s illegal colonialist activities in northern West Bank, said the colonists came from the Yitzhar colony, which was built on privately-owned Palestinian lands, south of Nablus.

Daghlas added that the colonists plowed lands are in Kaffet al-Manzila area, in the eastern part of Orif village.

He stated that the colonists brought several tractors, and added that the soldiers were also present but did not attempt to stop them.
