Settlers begin new settlement units in the northern Jordan Valley

Jerusalem24 – Today, Sunday, Israeli settlers began building new settlement units in the “Shadmot Michola” settlement, which is built on Palestinian lands in the northern Jordan Valley.

And human rights activist Aref Daraghmeh reported that settlers have started building settlement units in the settlement, which means devouring more lands.

“Shedmot Michola” is one of the settlements scattered in the northern Jordan Valley. It was established in 1979 as an agricultural settlement. The number of settlers in 2016 reached about 608, and in 2018, its total area was 363 dunums of citizens’ lands in the Jordan Valley.

In the same context, today, Sunday, settlers built a room made of wood and sheet metal in the lands of Khirbet Al-Farisiyah in the northern Jordan Valley.

Daraghmeh said, “the settlers set up a room of wood and sheet metal in the lands between the settlements of “Rotem” and “Shadmot Michola”, which are built on the lands of Palestinians in Al-Farsieh in the northern Jordan Valley.”

He warned that this room would be the nucleus of a new settlement outpost in the Jordan Valley, like the previous outposts that began in this way, and are now closing countless areas of pastoral lands to the Palestinians.
