A new settler attack on the lands west of Salfit

Jerusalem24 – Israeli settlers of the “Baduil” settlement, built on the lands of the town of Kafr ad-Dik, west of Salfit, attacked the land of Atallah Ali Ahmed.

The area of the land is estimated to be at approximately 60 dunums.

The mayor of Kafr al-Deek Muhammad Naji reported that, “a group of settlers vandalized and tampered with the land in the Dirya area, west of the town. They also placed a  paper containing a threat to the owners of the land. In addition to that they closed the roads leading to the land.”

He pointed out that this attack is part of a series of continuous settlement attacks that target the Palestinian presence to force citizens to leave their lands and replace them with settlers.

“It is not the first attack, as they uprooted 25 olive trees, their ages ranged between 5-7 years, a few days ago,” he added.

For his part, Kamil called on human rights institutions and international organizations to stand up to their responsibilities and take immediate action to compel the occupation and its settlers to stop the daily violations and attacks against farmers and their lands in the governorate.

It is noteworthy that the Diria area has been subjected to a fierce settlement attack for some time, as settlers seized 4 dunums earlier.
