IMEMC & Agencies: Several Israeli settlers closed the main road leading to Yasouf village, east of the central West Bank city of Salfit, and attacked a number of cars and citizens.

It is worth mentioning that the northern entrance of Salfit town has been blockaded and closed by the army since 2000.
Also in Salfit, the army ordered a number of Palestinians, from Broqeen village, to leave their lands, within 45 days, in order to illegally confiscate the lands for settlement construction activities, and for “military considerations”.
Ghassan Daghlas, in charge of the Israeli settlement files at the Palestinian Authority in the northern part of the West Bank, stated that the lands in question are nearly 100 Dunams (24.710 Acres), and added that villagers of Broqeen own the Palestinian lands.
In related news, several settlers uprooted and fenced Palestinian farmlands that belong to villagers of Khirbit Al-Fakhakheer near Salfit.
Furthermore, a number of settlers set ablaze Palestinian lands and trees that belong to residents of Betello village, west of Ramallah.
