On Friday, illegal paramilitary Israeli colonizers invaded a Palestinian land in the Wad Al-Ghoois area, east of Hebron in the occupied West Bank’s southern part and installed an outpost.
The land’s owner, Abdul-Karim Al-Qaimari, said the colonizers invaded his land and installed a tent and added that his land, about nine Dunams, is planted with almond trees.
Al-Qaimari added that his land is isolated between Kiryat Arba’ and Kharsina illegal colonies, east of Hebron.
He also said that the colonizers were seen planting grapevines on his land in preparation for illegally annexing it and establishing a bigger outpost.
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”.
On Friday dawn, Israeli soldiers abducted four Palestinians from their homes in the occupied West Bank in Hebron, Bethlehem, And Jerusalem.
Earlier Friday morning, Israeli soldiers killed Hamza Moayyad Maqbool, 32, and Khairi Mohammad Shahin, 33, and injured three others after the army and its undercover forces invaded Nablus, in the occupied West Bank’s northern part.
