Israeli settlers, on Tuesday, seized and bulldozed a portion of Palestinian-owned land in Tell and Immatain villages, near Nablus, in the northern occupied West Bank, Palestinian Information Center.

Palestinian official monitoring settlement activities, Ghassan Daghlas, said that illegal colonial settlers used bulldozers to clear land for the purpose of building a settler-only road leading to the illegal Israeli Havat Gilad colony.

Israeli forces, also reportedly bulldozed Palestinian-owned olive groves in Huwara town, south of Nablus, for the purpose of building a road for illegal settlers.

The escalation of home demolitions and destruction of Palestinian land in recent weeks is a prelude to Israel’s planned annexation of the occupied West Bank, in defiance of international law, and United Nations resolutions.
