Illegal settlers today setup several caravans along the fence between the illegal Jewish-only settlement of Beitar Illit and the occupied Palestinian village of Nahalin, west of Bethlehem, Ma'an reported.

The head of the Nahalin village, Sobhi Zeidan, told local news organisations that a group of Beitar Illit settlers installed ten mobile homes along the fence separating the illegal settlement from the land of the Palestinians in the area.

The illegal settlement of Beitar Illit was built on land belonging to the Palestinian villages of Nahalin, Husan and Wadi Fukin in the occupied West Bank.

Zeidan said the settlers' aim to incorporate the area into the settlement's parameters and steal more Palestinian land.
