Kafr Al Labad Mayor points to the new outpost on their land...

Tulkarem – Ma’an Exclusive – Dozens of Israeli settlers took over farmland in Kafr Al-Labad village, in the northern West Bank by erecting three tents that now play home to dozens of settlers, the town’s mayor said on Wednesday. The area now under settler occupation is public property owned by the Islamic Waqf, or endowment, said Kafr Al-Labad Mayor Ziad Jab’iti, and is located outside the village’s residential area. “The municipal council along with local active organizations will resist settlers and try all means to prevent confiscation of this land,” the mayor asserted, appealing to the Palestinian Authority and other national organizations to join the fight. He explained that settlers took advantage of the fact that the lands are in a remote area with little traffic. He also speculated that Israeli authorities would later remove the outpost in an attempt to show its compliance with international demands.
