Israeli settlers set up mobile homes in Nablus-area village

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers on Saturday set up mobile homes in Jalud village south of Nablus on Saturday, a local official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settler activity in the northern West Bank, said that several Israeli settlers set up five mobile homes in the Jabal Abu al-Rakha and Jabal Kweik areas in southern Jalud.

The areas are located between the illegal Israeli settlement outposts of Adi Ad and Esh Kodesh, Daghlas said.

There are over 500,000 Israeli settlers living in settlements across the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, in contravention of international law.

Some settlers act without approval to expand settlements or create new ones in the West Bank, building outposts that are illegal even by Israeli government standards.

In some cases, these settlement outposts are "legalized" by Israel, and in rare cases they are dismantled.

Meanwhile, Palestinians are rarely granted permission to build in the 60 percent of the West Bank under full Israeli military control, or in East Jerusalem.
