Israeli soldiers invaded, Monday, Palestinian lands in the villages of Iskaka and Yasuf, east of Salfit city in central West Bank, and started bulldozing them to expand an illegal colony.
Khaled ‘Abaya, the head of Yasuf Village Council, said the lands are privately owned by the villagers and are in the eastern area of Iskaka and the southern area of Yasuf.
He added that Israel is trying to expand the illegal Nofei Nehemia and to install new segregated roads.
Israel’s colonies in the occupied West Bank, including in and around occupied East Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention in addition to various UN resolutions.
In Hebron, in southern West Bank, the soldiers invaded Tarqoumia town, west of the city, demolished an agricultural shed, and bulldozed lands.
