Illegal Israeli colonizers uprooted Thursday, large areas of Palestinian agricultural lands northwest of Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Mohammad Azem, the Mayor of Sebastia town, said the colonizers invaded Palestinian lands in Sebastia and an-Naqoura and started bulldozing them.

Azem added that the bulldozed lands are near the Nablus-Jenin Road in Basin #4 in Sebastia and #12 in an-Naqoura.

He said the Palestinians from the two towns have all official deeds proving ownership of the lands and added that the colonizers are bulldozing the lands to expand the illegal Shavei Shomron colony.
