460_0___10000000_0_0_0_0_0_salem4oct112011On Friday at dawn, a group of armed extremist Israeli settlers installed a new illegal settlement outpost in Ras Hazem Mountain that belongs to the residents of Salem village, east of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.

Head of the Salem Village Council, Abdulkarim Hussein, stated that the settlers previously installed two mobile homes in the area, but on Friday they installed more than 10 other homes while Israeli bulldozers uprooted olive trees in the area.

Hussein added that the mountain is 400 Dunams of land owned by the villagers, and that the owners have all needed deeds and documents proving their ownership.

He further stated that the settlers seem to be planning to expand the Elon Moreh illegal settlement in the area, as they repeatedly expanded it on the expense of the Palestinians and their lands in the village and a number of nearby villages.
