Israel levels land east of Al-Quds to expand illegal settlement

The Israeli occupation authorities leveled a large area of land in the Palestinian town of Abu Dis, southeast of occupied Jerusalem Al-Quds, in an effort to expand an illegal settlement.

Bassam Bahar, head of the Committee for the Defense of Abu Dis Land told WAFA that the land, estimated at 1500 dunums (1.5 square kilometers), is located near the illegal Kedar settlement, built on land belonging to residents of Abu Dis.


He said that the occupation authorities prevent the landowners from working in it or reclaiming it since it falls within the Zionist settlement plan known as E1.


Zionist regime’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently gave the green light to start implementing this dangerous settlement project, strongly opposed by the international community because it would divide the West Bank in half.
