 Israeli occupation forces yesterday placed two mobile homes on lands belonging to the Palestinian village of Asira al-Qibliya, south of the occupied West Bank city of Nablus, as a prelude for expanding the nearby illegal Israeli settlement of Yitzhar, according to a local activist.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors the Israeli colonial settlement activities in the north of the West Bank, told WAFA that Israeli occupation soldiers placed two mobile homes on the land of Asira al-Qibliya village, located adjacent to the illegal Israeli settlement of Yitzhar.

The placement of mobile homes on Palestinian land is normally a prelude for building a settlement outpost that will eventually grow into a full-fledged settlement with Israeli government consent. This step entails seizing thousands of dunums of Palestinian land in the occupied West Bank.
