West Bank, (Pal Telegraph)- Israeli Settlers 
Monday continued their brutal attacks on 
Palestinian land by seizing land and uprooting trees in the West Bank.

In Tubas, Head of the Al-Malih and Bedouin 
Communities in the Jordan Valley, Aref Daraghmeh, 
said that settlers of 'Rotem' Settlement, built 
on Tubas’s land, seized land in the northern 
Jordan Valley and In Tubas governate, and planted 
them with olive trees to prove they own these 
lands, although the Palestinians have legal 
papers of their ownership to these lands.

He called on Palestinians not to leave their land 
and cling to the ownership rights over that land. 
He also called on all human rights, humanitarian 
and international organizations to stop being a 
bystander and take measures to defend 
Palestinians as he believes that “silence on a crime is participating in it”.

In Hebron, Spokesman of the National Committee 
Against the Wall and settlement in Beit Ummar, 
Mohammed Awad, told WAFA that Israeli forces and 
settlers of ‘Bat Ayin’ settlement, attacked 
Palestinians and their property in Beit Ummar, a 
village northwest of Hebron, uprooted more than 
45 olive trees and declared it as a closed military zone.

Witnesses told WAFA that settlers protected by 
Israeli soldiers and police today, also broke 
into Hebron Cemetery, adjacent to the ‘Shuhada’ 
Street, in Hebron city, and wrote racist slogans 
on the walls, causing a state of terror and panic 
among Palestinian students and citizens.

Witnesses added that Settlers beaten some 
Palestinian boys at the entrance of the ‘Shuhada’ Street.

Witnesses in Tel Rumeida,a neighborhood in the 
center of Hebron city, said that settlers are 
heavily spread in the area of ??Tel Rumeida, and 
they raise their flags and write their slogans on the walls.

In salfit, Israeli forces uprooted and seized 
olive trees in an area near Bassa spring, west of Deir Istiya town.

According to mayor of Deir Istiya, Nazmi Salman, 
an Israeli bulldozer accompanied by a military 
force uprooted 19 olive trees owned by Qasim Mansur and took them away.

He said that Israeli settlers from the ‘Amoni’l 
settlement, which is  built on Deir Istiya land, 
drowned the entrance of Wadi Qana with wastewater.


We believe in the following:

The only real road to Peace is a full and 
unconditional Liberation of Palestine, liberation 
from the supremacist ideology and liberation from 
the perpetrators. That will inevitably mean a 
return to the original, peaceful society 
Palestine was before the Zionist invasion. Our 
true and sincere aspirations are long lasting 
Peace, Justice and Freedom. We believe that this 
will restore of the true foundations of Palestinian society.

Palestinians are always grateful and appreciative 
of the hard work and dedication of all their 
supporters whomever they are, however, 
Palestinians have NO obligation to hold back 
their march for freedom, to curtail their aims or 
to smother their rights for the sake of 
accommodating and not offending their Jewish 
supporters or to adopt the aims and objectives of 
the anti-zionist Jewish supporters instead of their own.

Palestinians have the ultimate right to choose 
their strategy and tactics of resistance that 
they deem most suitable for achieving their 
freedom, reinstatement of rights, and aspirations.

Palestinians have the ultimate right to choose 
their vision for their future, of FREE Palestine 
including the type of government, the writing of 
constitution, the construction and implementation 
of their legal and juristic system, which stems 
from and corresponds to their ethics and reflects and protects their culture.

It is the privilege of Palestinian to decide who 
should stay in liberated Palestine and who is 
not, using the legal procedure of their own choice.

All refugee and their descendents have the 
unconditional right to come back home, they, the 
rightful indigenous owners are also entitled to 
the reinstatement of ALL confiscated (stolen) 
land and property, compensation for all their 
losses over the many years of exile and they are 
also entitled to Palestinian citizenship wherever they are.

The aims and dreams of most Palestinians are not 
confined to the change of zionist regime or the 
vacuous declaration of abandonment of zionism by 
the Jewish-zionist occupiers, but rather to the 
FULL Liberation of Palestine and the restoration of all their rights
