IOA to confiscate hundreds of dunums south of Bethlehem
IOA to confiscate hundreds of dunums south of Bethlehem
[ 01/01/2014 - 10:42 AM ]

BETHLEHEM, (PIC)-- The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) plans to confiscate 300 dunums in Al-Khader village, south of Bethlehem, and turn them into “state land”.

Local sources told the PIC reporter that the confiscation of the land would entail the annexation of 1,700 dunums near it to the Jewish settlement of Efrat, which was established on Palestinian land to the south of Bethlehem.

The sources said that annexing those lands would mean isolating Bethlehem city from its southern rural areas.

The sources said that the Israeli army verbally informed the farmers and land owners of the confiscation, adding that written notifications would be distributed in the few coming days.
