illegal settlement in Jerusalem

Occupied West Bank (QNN)- A new study by the Land Research Center in
occupied Jerusalem has stated that 2019 could be titled as the years of
legitimizing illegal settlement, especially following the US announcement,
which deemed the Israeli settlement legal.

The study revealed that for each 3.4 Palestinians in the West Bank, there
is one settler living in illegal settlements. Meanwhile, the figures show
that for each dunum controlled by native Palestinians, there is another
dunum that goes for settlers.

The study also noted that the most dangerous figures were documented in
occupied Jerusalem, where there is one settler for each 1.3 native
Palestinians and 7.5 dunums that go for settlements for each dunum owned by
Palestinians.

2019 has seen the demolition of 648 Palestinian structures while 730 other
structures have been threatened to be demolished.

Nearly 68,000 dunums of Palestinian land were confiscated, 3553 dunums were
damaged, and 15,670 trees were damaged in the same year.

The occupation state has also set 34 additional checkpoints, increasing the
total number of military checkpoints that dismember what is left of
historic Palestine to 888 checkpoints.

According to the study, the occupation state has built six new settlement
outposts, approved 40 settlement plans, and announced intentions to approve
26 other plans to expand 47 settlements.
