On Friday dawn, illegal Israeli colonizers installed an outpost on stolen Palestinian lands in Joreesh village, southeast of Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.
Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official who monitors Israel’s illegal colonialist activities in the northern West Bank, said the colonizers invaded lands in the Wa’er Jama area.
Daghlas stated that the colonizers brought mobile homes and various types of equipment and supplies to establish their outpost on the stolen Palestinian lands.
He added that the colonizers have recently escalated their violations, including the theft of Palestinian lands, bulldozing and uprooting Palestinian lands, to build or expand their outposts.
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”.
