Settlers begin establishing an outpost on Sbaih Mount in Nablus

PNN/ Nablus/

On Monday evening, settlers began establishing an outpost on the summit of Sbaih mount in the town of Beita, south of Nablus, northern West Bank.

Eyewitnesses reported that last night settlers were seen at the top of the mountain before they began to place some tents and caravans, in preparation to establishing a settlement outpost, to complement their previously failed attempts.

The settlers have previously tried to take over this area several times, either by installing mobile homes or setting up tents. However, each time they were surprised by a strong reaction from the townspeople.

The people of Beita responded to the settlers ’attempts to establish a settlement outpost and to control Mount Sabih, forcing them to leave the entire area during the past three years.

At the beginning of March, the town of Beita witnessed a round of confrontations to reject settler attempts to found the settlement outpost settle on the Sabih and Al-Irma mountains, which resulted in the killing of two Palestinians.

The modern settlement measures come within the framework of the settlement project in the settlement of “Itamar” and the endeavor to create a new outpost.

Settlers take advantage of the preoccupation with the Corona crisis by implementing settlement projects and plans on the one hand, and implementing the crimes of cutting and uprooting trees and burning lands again.

The periodic report issued by the media office of Hamas in the West Bank noted that the occupation forces committed (1575) violations of the rights of the Palestinian people and their land in the West Bank and occupied Jerusalem during last September.

According to the report, the number of settlement activities reached (16), which varied between confiscation and leveling of lands, construction of roads, and approval of building settlement units.
