Hundreds of Settlers Break Into Evicted Settlement in Jenin

NABLUS, April 10, 2012 (WAFA) – Hundreds of Jewish settlers Tuesday broke into the evicted settlement of Homesh, south of Jenin, to commemorate the Jewish holiday Passover, known as “Pesach,” in response to previous settlers’ calls, according to a local activist.
Ghassan Douglas, in charge of settlements file at the Palestinian Authority in the northern part of the West Bank, told WAFA that hundreds of settlers were transferred in large buses to the settlement, which was established on the land of the nearby village of Burqa, under the protection of the Israeli army.
He added that Israeli soldiers intensified their presence in Burqa, set up several flying military checkpoints on entrances of several towns in Nablus, stopped Palestinian vehicles and checked their identity cards.Palestine News & Info Agency - WAFA
