Palestinian farmer prevented from reclaiming his land

Israeli authorities recently set up a new settlement outpost near his land

Jerusalem24 – Israeli forces and settlers, on Saturday, prevented a Palestinian farmer from conducting maintenance work in his own land, located outside the village of Kifl Hares, near the town of Salfit in the occupied West Bank.

Jaser al-Qaq, a Palestinian citizen and farmer from Kifl Hares, said that the Israeli soldiers and settlers forced a number of workers that he hired for the gardening and maintenance works to leave his land.

He said the Israeli authorities recently set up a new settlement outpost near his land, apparently in a prelude to establish a new settlement in the area.

Over 700,000 Israeli settlers live in Jewish-only settlements across the West Bank in violation of international law, particularly the Fourth Geneva Convention which expressly bans the relocation of the occupying nation’s civilian population to the land of the occupied.
