AhlulBayt News Agency - Palestinian local sources have reported that construction activities in the settlements of Ariel and Leshem are going apace at the expense of the villages and towns of Salfit province.

The sources told Palestinian News that bulldozing and construction activities in Leshem settlement continued to devour the lands of Rafat and Deir Ballut towns, west of Salfit.

They added that the settlement of Ariel had also devoured the fertile lands of Wadi Abdul-Rahman for the construction of more housing units.

According to anti-settlement activist Khaled Maali, widespread construction activities are taking place in the majority of settlements in Salfit.

The construction and expansion of settlements in Salfit have caused considerable property and agricultural losses for the local residents and increased the rate of unemployment among them.
