DAMASCUS, SYRIA (6:08 A.M)- Al-Khalil (Hebron), a city in Southern occupied West Bank, is seeing an influx in illegal Israeli settlers after the Jewish holiday of Purim. A new Settlement has just been established and with the power of the Israeli military behind it, vows to steal homes of Palestinian owners.
Early this Monday morning, a group of Israeli settlers – backed by an entourage of heavily armed occupation soldiers – set up camp, with four newly purchased caravans.
The illegal settlers are now living on the land they have stolen, adjacent to a fellow illegal settlement known as Kharsina settlement. According to local sources, speaking to Palestinian media outlets such as ‘Al-Aqsa TV’, the stated effort was to eventually seize all the land by encircling it with settlements.
Three families native to this land, fear their misplacement. Those in fear of being cleansed include the Jwihan, Eida and Abu al-Halawa families.
