Hundreds of settlers storm Palestinian lands in Nablus

NABLUS, (PIC)– Hundreds of Israeli settlers stormed at dawn Thursday Palestinian-owned land in Burqa town to the north of the West Bank city of Nablus, local activists reported.

Large lands of Burqa town were previously confiscated and turned into Homesh settlement before an Israeli court ordered its evacuation in 2005.

Official of settlement file in northern West Bank Gassen Douglas stated that hundreds of settlers stormed the town heading to the evacuated settlement amid Israeli military protection in an attempt to retake control over it.

A number of Jewish groups have earlier advocated taking control over the area to reestablish the evacuated town, Douglas pointed out.

Douglas stated that the settlers’ break-in into the town could be a part of Israeli celebration of the so-called “the Independence Day”.

Israeli settlers’ attacks against Palestinian people and properties have intensively increased since the Israeli elections, he added.

Clashes broke out in the area between local residents and the invading settlers and forces who violently stormed the lands in total violation of the Israeli court’s order.
