Settlers create outpost near Nablus

Feb. 5, 2015 3:01 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 9, 2015 10:47 A.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A group of Israeli settlers stormed an outskirt of the northern West Bank village of Beita south of Nablus on Thursday and set up a new illegal settlement outpost, a Palestinian Authority official said.

Ghassan Daghlas told Ma'an that several settler vehicles arrived at the Jabal Subeih area and set up movable houses and water tanks. The settlers, he added, surrounded the area with a fence.

Settlers tried to take control of the area in the past. Now they have arrived with their families for the first time, which means they want to settle down and create a new illegal outpost, he added.

The Palestinian Authority's liaison department has asked its Israeli counterpart for an explanation.
