Israeli bulldozers destroy Palestinian lands south of Nablus

Nov. 3, 2013 6:13 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 4, 2013 3:59 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli bulldozers razed and dug up agricultural lands near the Palestinian village of Qusra in the southern part of Nablus on Sunday morning.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian Authority official who monitors settler activities in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that Israeli bulldozers from the nearby settlement of Migdalim entered the lands early in the morning and began to dig in the nearby village of Qusra.

Daghlas added that the bulldozers were digging to extend the nearby settlement into Palestinian land.

More than 500,000 Israeli settlers live in settlements across the West Bank and East Jerusalem, in contravention of international law.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.
