Palestine: Israeli settlers burn a chicken coop near Nablus


IMEMC & Agencies:

A number of armed extremist Israeli settlers burnt on Sunday at dawn a chicken coop that belongs to a villager of Qasra village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.

Local sources reported that settlers of the Magdolim illegal settlement, attacked the village of Qasra, southeast of Nablus, and burnt a chicken coop that belongs to resident Jamal Abu Reeda.

The Radio Bethlehem 2000 interviewed the head of the Qasra Village Council, Abdul-Athim Al-Wady, who stated that the settlers have escalated their attacks against the village, and several nearby villages, especially over the past few days.

In related news, a number of Israeli settlers raised Israeli flags, planted olive saplings, and placed some clay pots at the entrance of the Al-Qit area, in Al-Khader south of Bethlehem.

Coordinator of the Popular Committee Against the Wall and Settlements in Al-Khader, Ahmad Salah, told Radio Bethlehem 2000 that, a few months ago, the settlers illegally occupied five dunams (1.23 Acres) of Palestinian lands in the area, and were never removed.

He added that the settlers are repeatedly trying to occupy and plant Palestinians lands in the area in order to install illegal settlement outposts, or to expand existing illegal outposts.

Furthermore, a number of armed Israeli settlers attacked several Palestinian farmers, and prevented them from plowing their own lands east of Yatta town, near the southern West Bank city of Hebron.

Also, the Popular Committee against the Wall and Settlements in Beit Ummar town, north of the of Hebron, reported that Israeli soldiers kidnapped three children, earlier on Sunday at dawn, an issue that led to clashes between local youths and Israeli soldiers.

Also on Sunday, Israeli soldiers kidnapped three Palestinian youths in Hares village, near the central West Bank city of Salfit, and three more Palestinians in the Al-Yamoun village, near the northern West Bank city of Jenin.
