Illegal Israeli settlers have set fire to agricultural land in a Palestinian village in the south of Nablus in the West Bank.

A Palestinian official in the West Bank said on Sunday that the settlers set some 15 hectares of land on fire in the village of Jaloud, Palestinian WAFA news agency reported.

According to the official, this was not the first time that Israeli settlers had attacked the area.

Last week, a group of extremist Israeli settlers torched Palestinian farmland owned by residents of the Sorra village near Nablus.

This is while on Sunday, Israeli authorities approved the construction of 8,800 illegal settlement units in the north of the West Bank.

In September 2010, the Israeli regime resumed the expansion of settlements in the occupied territories after a 10-month partial freeze, prompting the Palestinian Authority leaders to break off the US-sponsored talks with Tel-Aviv that had resumed after a lengthy stalemate.

Israel occupied the Palestinian lands after the Six-Day War in 1967 and has ever since expanded its illegal settlements with utter disregard for international condemnation.
