IOF levels land in the archaeological ares of Sebastia

Sebastia

Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) stormed on Thursday the archaeological area in Sebastia, north of Nablus city, and conducted leveling works in order to pave the way for opening a road for settlers.

A local source told the PIC reporter that opening the road will increase the IOF break-ins and change its historical features, which violates the international laws especially the UNESCO’s, he said.

He pointed out that Sebastia municipality refused previous Israeli attempts to take over the historical site under the pretext of restoration.

Israeli forces every now and then target Sebastia town and its historical site by repeated break-ins especially in Jewish holidays.
