NABLUS, (PIC)-- Jewish settlers from Eli settlement south of Nablus started to bulldoze Palestinian land near their settlement on Thursday without prior notice, eyewitnesses reported.

They said that similar expansion works were seen in the nearby Shilo and Shvut Rahel settlements.

Meanwhile, more than a thousand extremist settlers stormed the Nabi Yusuf tomb in Nablus city at dawn Thursday escorted by a large number of Israeli army soldiers.

Local sources said that the settlers arrived in buses as the Israeli military sealed off the eastern suburbs of the city and those adjacent to the tomb.

They said that the settlers performed rituals before withdrawing by sunset.

Young men in the area threw stones at the settlers and the soldiers who responded by firing gas bombs and rubber bullets. No casualties were reported.

Israel razes two Palestinian homes in Ara

RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- Israeli bulldozers razed two Palestinian homes in Ara village, in the Triangle area occupied since 1948, at the pretext of lack of construction permits.

The demolition, which took place at dawn, was protected by large numbers of policemen, who blocked citizens from heading to the scene to defend the houses.

Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Wednesday served eight demolition notices to Bedouin families in the southern Jordan Valley.

Eyewitnesses said that the notices were delivered in the wake of a raid on those areas north of Jericho.

IOF bulldozers also leveled vast areas of land in Oja area in Jordan Valley in preparation for controlling the land, locals reported.
