A group of illegal Israeli colonizers invaded, Friday, Palestinian farmlands in Kafr ed-Deek town, west of the central West Bank city of Salfit, before illegally occupying four dunams of private Palestinian lands.

Ahmad Younis, the owner of the lands, said dozens of colonizers invaded the area and fenced his land before planting saplings.

Younis added that the colonizers placed banners warning the Palestinians not to approach the area.

He also said that, in the year 2019, Israeli soldiers prevented him from working on his land, and stopped the digging of a well in the area.

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.
