Israeli bulldozers on Sunday morning continued to raze Palestinian land tracts across Salfit governorate in favor of illegal settlement expansion.

Speaking to the PIC, local farmers said the Israeli bulldozers leveled Palestinian lands near illegal settlement outposts.

Palestinian lands in and outside Leshem outpost, near Deir Balout, Kafr al-Deek, Rafat, and al-Zawiya, have also been bulldozed in the process.

Researcher Khaled Maali said the move makes part of Israeli attempts to grab more Palestinian lands in the Israel-run Area C.

Maali further warned of the swift pace of Israel’s settlement activity in Salfit in an attempt to prop up geopolitical ties between 25 outposts built on Palestinian land in the area.

He added that the move is expected to culminate in a settlement strip stretching from Zaatara checkpoint, east of Salfit, to Kafr Kasem, in 1948 Occupied Palestine (Green Line). A railway connecting Tel Aviv to the second largest West Bank outpost of Ariel is also expected to be set up in the process.

According to Maali another repercussion of the plan lies in the confiscation of the largest water basin in historical Palestine.

Don't know if you heard Bibi Netanyahu speech at the United Nations I heard it not live but after he actually delivered it and he began and he began it with probably the two most striking examples of myth and double standard and he began by talking about the right of return of the Jews to their ancient homeland and of course the Jews that returned so-called returned to their homeland were not exactly the the same Jews who were expelled from their homeland right because these were expelled a couple of thousand years before that these were not their descendants either because they this is business has been a very long time so these are people the people that actually came back so to speak are people that claim some kind of a heritage some kind of a connection a relationship to the ancient Hebrews and they claimed that they had the right to return to their homeland and this was this is what Zionism was about and this is expected this was you know accepted by the world as the right they had the right to return now if we talk about the right of return of one nation you'd expect that there would be if we accept it as a principle than
