Settlers take over Palestinian land in Jordan Valley

PNN/ Jericho/

A group of Israeli settlers on Sunday afternoon have taken over an agricultural  Palestinian-owned gricultural land in the northern Jordan Valley.

A local resident told the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) that the villagers were able recently to obtain an Israeli court verdict that gave them back part of their lands that had been seized by settlers in a previous incident.

He affirmed that this court verdict, however, was never respected by Jewish settlers living near their hamlet.

He added that a group of settlers seized once again on Sunday their agricultural land and embarked on cultivating it for their own use.
