By Saed Bannoura

IMEMC & Agencies: Local sources in Salfit district, in the central part of the West Bank, have reported that Israeli bulldozers uprooted Palestinians lands, west of Salfit, in preparation for building new units in Leshim illegal settlement.

Leshim  Settlement - Active Stills

[Leshim  Settlement - Active Stills]

The lands are located between Deir Ballout and Kufr Ad-Deek towns. Leshim was built last year on privately owned Palestinian lands.
Israeli Housing Minister, Uri Ariel, placed the corner stone of the illegal settlement.
The Salfit district is one of the most impacted districts due to Israel’s illegal settlement activities as it contains 23 Israeli settlements swallowing more than half of Salfit’s farmlands.
It is worth mentioning that there are 18 Palestinian towns and villages in the Salfit District.
Israel also prepared a plan for constructing 3800 units for Jewish settlers in the occupied West Bank, and in occupied East Jerusalem.
Besides being illegal under International Law and the Fourth Geneva Convention, settlements are consuming large areas of Palestinians orchards and fertile lands, and are devastating the Palestinian economy.
