ISRAEL’S ILLEGAL SETTLEMENT EXPANSION IN FULL SWING IN ERKA

Israeli bulldozers on Monday leveled Palestinian lands in Jenin’s western town of Erka, in the northern occupied West Bank, in favor of illegal settlement expansion.

A PIC news correspondent said a number of Israeli bulldozers razed Palestinian lands in Erka town in an attempt to expand Shaked illegal settlement outpost.

A new road is expected to be built in the area so as to smooth settlers’ access to Shaked’s industrial zone.

Speaking to the PIC, Palestinian citizen Mohamed Yahya, a native of Erka town, said the Israeli industrial zone located northeast of Shaked outpost comprises nine factories manufacturing leather, iron, and plastic furniture, among other products.

In a statement issued on Monday, Erka’s village council warned of Israeli plans to expand illegal settlement units at the expense of Palestinians’ private lands in the area.

Shaked outpost was established in 1981 and has been home to fanatic settlers. An apartheid wall built around the outpost has severed the ties between surrounding Palestinian towns and villages.
