Nablus / PNN/

The Palestinian Authority official in charge of monitoring settlement activity in the northern West Bank, Ghassan Daghlas, said that the Israeli occupation authorities have added more than 600 settlement units during the past five days to the settlement “Avni Hafetz “, which is built on territory of Shofa village in Tulkarem.

“There is a great acceleration in settlement expansion in this area where the occupation forces are working day and night to expand the settlement and turn it into a big one at the expense of the citizens’ lands,” Daghlas told Voice of Palestine radio on Tuesday morning.

The official pointed out that he had been contacted by the Council of the village of Shofa to follow up the issue from the legal point of view and to address it publicly.
