Brief narrative

Settlers on Monday appropriated over 50 dunams of land in the northern and southern West Bank, official news agency Wafa reported.

In the Tubas area of the Jordan Valley, settlers seized nearly 50 dunams of land and began farming it, village council head Aref Daraghmeh said.

The land, which belongs to villagers, had previously been used by the Israeli army as a tank yard, he added.

In Hebron, settlers from Susiya settlement seized five dunams of private Palestinian land near the town of Yatta, popular committee coordinator Rateb al-Jabour said.

Settlers, under the protection of Israeli soldiers, broke into the land and set up a power generator as part of plans to use the land for settlement expansion, he added.

The dunam, a measurement unit dating back to the Ottoman empire, is equivalent to 1,000 square meters.
