Israeli settlers seized yesterday Palestinian land and today set up a caravan on it in an area known as al-Makhrour in Beit Jala, west of the southern West Bank biblical city of Bethlehem, in preparation for building a new settlement in that area, said local sources.

They said that settlers broke yesterday into a four-dunum plot of land owned by Saba Iskandar in al-Makhrour and started to raze it before coming back today, surround the land with barbed wire and place a caravan on it. They also brought a generator and electrical equipment.

The caravan is usually a nucleus for the construction of an illegal settlement.

It is worth mentioning that a Palestinian-owned  house and a restaurant in al-Makhrour area were demolished last week by the Israeli army.
