Israeli settler gangs grabbed hold of hundreds of dunums of Palestinian lands in the northern Jordan Valley.

Activist Motaz Besharat, who is in charge of the northern Jordan Valley file, said Israeli settlers seized over 300 dunums of Palestinian lands in al-Hima and set the foundations for new illegal settlement units and water pipes.

Activists warned of an upsurge in Israeli settlement schemes in the region over the past few years as part of an Israeli plan of ethnic cleansing against the Palestinians.
