Israeli settlers set up new settlement outpost in Nablus

May 12, 2019 12:14 P.M. (Updated: May 13, 2019 12:21 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A new illegal Israeli settlement outpost was set up, on Saturday, on Palestinian-owned lands belonging to the residents of the Deir al-Hatab village, east of the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus.
A Palestinian official who monitors settlement activist in the northern West Bank, Ghassan Daghlas, told Ma'an that the residents of Deit al-Hatab were shocked to find out on Saturday noon that Israeli settlers set up a new settlement outpost, in the form of three large caravans, on their lands.
In August 2018, the Jerusalem District Court ruled that if Israeli settlers built a settlement on private Palestinian land with "good intentions" then it should not be removed. Therefore, allowing more Palestinian lands to be seized by Israeli settlers as they see fit.

Hanan Ashrawi, Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) Executive Committee Member, said that the court's ruling provides the Israeli settlers with further motivation "to steal the private property of Palestinian landowners throughout occupied Palestine without any curbs or accountability."
