Gaza19Aug6SALFIT (PNIC):-The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) has continued to expand the illegal settlement of Elkana at the expense of Palestinian land in Mas-ha village, west of Salfit in the West Bank.

Local sources told the (PNIC) on Wednesday morning that there were construction activities underway in the northwestern area of the village aimed at building a new academic facility for Jewish settlers.

Meanwhile, the IOA prevents local farmers from going to their plots of land behind the separation wall and rarely allows them to cultivate and take care of their land for a few minutes, according to the sources.

The sources voiced fears that the lands behind the wall could be exposed to annexation and bulldozing as part of the new settlement expansion activities.

Israel's settlement construction, which is illegal under international law, is seen as an obstacle to any lasting peace with the Palestinians, who want their future state to be on land much of which Israel has annexed or built settlements on.
