Israel builds more student housing units in Ariel University

Ariel University

Construction activities are reportedly taking place nowadays in the illegal settlement of Ariel, which is built on annexed land in the West Bank province of Salfit.

Eyewitnesses told the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) that a large number of housing units are under construction or about to be finished on the northern area of the University, seemingly to house more student settlers.

In this regard, local researcher Khaled Maali stated that Israel built Ariel settlement in the first place in order to swamp Salfit and its villages with Jewish settlers.

Maali affirmed that the University was established on land confiscated from the local Palestinian residents in Salfit.

The existence of Israeli settlements in the West Bank in general including Ariel University is deemed illegal under international law because they were established on occupied land.
