Jewish Settlers Expand Outposts in the Jordan Valley

Israeli settlers started building and setting up housing structures in a settlement outpost in Khirbet Al-Sweida village in Tubas in the northern Jordan Valley of the occupied West Bank, reported Ma’an News Agency yesterday.

According to activist Aaref Daraghmeh, Israel confiscated thousands of dunums of lands from its original Palestinian owners for Israeli settlement expansion in the area.

Daraghmeh said that Israeli settlers have now set up mobile homes around five kilometers away from the Al-Sweida settlement outpost near the village, and had raised the Israeli flag on the structures.
