On Sunday, illegal paramilitary Israeli colonizers invaded and fenced Palestinian lands in the Ihmayyer area in Al-Farisiyya in the Northern Plains of the occupied West Bank.
Local human rights activist, Aref Daraghma, said the fencing of the Palestinian lands came just eight months after the colonizers illegally occupied them to build a new colony.
Daraghma added that Al-Farisiyya is subject to escalating violations, including the theft of Palestinian lands.
He said that, in April of the last year, 2022, the colonizers annexed large Palestinian lands and started building a school and other facilities funded by the so-called “Regional Council of Settlements.”
Regional Council of Settlements” started bulldozing Palestinian lands near the resident’s tents and sheds, while the army also started confiscating agricultural tractors and tools to force the Palestinians out.
In related news, illegal Israeli colonizers stole large quantities of food supplies and household products displayed in front of a shop owned by Emad Ali Hamdan in Huwwara town, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.
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 Law.
Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states: “The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.” It also prohibits the “individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory”.
