According to the monthly report released on Sunday, the Israeli army carried out 1472 attacks, while settlers executed 220 attacks in the West Bank.

The report pointed out that the number of attacks by extremist settlers was concentrated in Nablus Governorate with 62 attacks, 60 in Hebron Governorate, and 25 in Bethlehem.

During their attacks, settlers carried out 179 acts of sabotage and assault on the properties of citizens. Additionally, there were 4 attempts to establish new settlement outposts in the governorates of Bethlehem, Salfit, Ramallah, and Tubas, along with attempts to pave 4 roads in Nablus and Hebron, and 2 in Salfit.

The attacks by settlers also resulted in uprooting and burning a total of 3232 trees, including 3082 olive trees in the governorates of Bethlehem, Nablus, Qalqilya, Salfit, and Hebron. They also stole more than 70 head of cattle, executed 9 equipment thefts from farmers, and committed 6 cases of olive fruit theft and 3 thefts of mobile homes and a tractor.

President of the Resistance Wall and Settlement Commission, Muayyad Shaban, mentioned that Israeli authorities demolished 80 structures, including 37 inhabited homes, 9 uninhabited homes, and 17 agricultural facilities, in Hebron, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and Jenin.

Shaban added that Israeli authorities began issuing many military-styled orders, termed "urgent orders," to take control of areas of citizens' lands. These orders are characterized by prohibiting citizens from objecting to them, attempting to thwart citizens' efforts to monitor and reclaim these lands.

Furthermore, Israeli authorities seized a total of 20 dunums last month through issuing 5 orders to place land under military control for military purposes in the governorates of Nablus, Qalqilya, Bethlehem, and Ramallah. They also issued demolition notices for 9 buildings belonging to citizens in Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Ramallah, and Tubas.

He revealed that Israeli authorities have intensified, in recent times, the study of structural plans for settlements, either by approval or deposit for the purpose of expansion at the expense of citizens' lands. They submitted a total of 19 structural plans for settlement expansion for study, with 2364 settlement units concentrated in the governorates of Qalqilya, Bethlehem, Salfit, Jericho, and Hebron. This includes approval for the establishment of two electricity facilities in Jericho Governorate.
