Awad Swai, an official in the Ministry of Agriculture, reported that hundreds of settlers invaded the neighborhoods through the nearby village of Wadi Rahhal and accesses in the Annexation wall built at the village. He added that they arrived under cover of the Israeli army.

Swai stated that this is not the first invasion of the village. The settlers keep coming, in attempts to take over Abu Zaid Mountain with the intention of expanding the illegal settlement of “E’frat”.

According to the settlers’ website, Swai said, the building of a new settlement in the al-Nahleh neighborhood is in the air.
