PNN/ Jordan Valley/

The Israeli daily, Haaretz on Sunday said that the Israeli settlers have a new settlement gathering near an Israeli military point in the northers part of the valley, five kilometers awway from two other settlements.

According to the newspaper, the settlers have arrived to the area two months ago and built a “tabernacle” and left. A few days ago, they went back to the area and levelled the land and began to build, as told by local eyewitnesses.

According to the coordinator of the Israeli Aithorities, the building is illegal and does not have permits, and said that the authorities will halt the building and might even confiscate the equipment.

According to Haaretz, this is the second community being built by Israeli settlers within the past two months. One and a half months ago, Israeli settlers started building units in the same area, before it was exposed also by Haaretz.

Israeli settlements are illegal in international law.
