Israeli settlers today set up a caravan on the lands of Umm Ar-Rihan village, southwest of the occupied West Bank city of Jenin, local sources said.
They told WAFA that settlers set up the mobile home at the intersection leading at the junction leading to the village, which is flanked by illegal Israeli colonial settlements and isolated behind Israel’s apartheid wall.
This step came after an Israeli settler was found dead in the village forests where she had gone for a run a day earlier.
Settlers exploit the alleged killing of any settler as a cover to set up new colonial settlement outposts. Such measures, taken under the guise of security, are intended to entrench Israel’s 53-year-old military occupation of the West Bank and its settler colonial project which it enforces with routine and frequently deadly violence against Palestinians.
