Settlers set up a new outpost on private Palestinian land in a northern West Bank village

In the early hours of this morning, Israeli settlers in support by the occupation forces set up six mobile homes on private Palestinian lands in the village of al-Lubban al-Sharqiya, on the road connecting Ramallah and Nablus in the north of the occupied West Bank.

Israeli army bulldozers leveled land in the area to prepare it for the establishment of the settlement outpost. The land is owned by Mousa al-Abd Aweis, Abdel-Rahim Noubani, and Ahmad Mahmoud Aweis.

The construction of the new outpost is near where four Israeli settlers were shot and killed on Monday by Palestinian fighters. The Israeli government decided to build the new settlement outpost as a punitive measure against the Palestinians.

It is noteworthy that seven illegal settlement outposts exist in the same area and include the settlements of Eli, Ma’ale Levonah and Shilo, which together form a huge settlement bloc in the middle of the West Bank thus separating between the north and south of the West Bank.
