Several illegal Israeli colonizers invaded, on Sunday evening, Palestinian farmlands in the Khirbat al-Hadidiya area in the Northern Plains of the occupied West Bank, and bulldozed them in preparation for occupying them.

Human Rights activist Aref Daraghma stated that the colonizers brought bulldozers and started uprooting the lands, in the northern part of Khirbat al-Hadidiya.

Daraghma added that the colonizers have recently escalated their violations against the Palestinians and their lands.

He also said that the colonizers recently bulldozed farmlands in a nearby meadow and started marking them down in preparation for occupying them.

All of Israel’s colonies in the occupied West Bank, including those in and around occupied East Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention in addition to various United Nations and Security Council resolutions. They also constitute war crimes under International Humanitarian Law.
