NABLUS, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) ordered the confiscation of 1,000 dunums of Palestinian land of Jalud village, southeast of Nablus, on Wednesday, to establish an army base.

Ghassan Daghlas, the head of the committee monitoring settlement activity north of the West Bank, said in a press statement that the commander of the Israeli army said that the land was needed for “security reasons” to deter resistance attacks.

The IOA announced that the land was finally seized after it had sealed it off before the Jalud inhabitants since 2000.

For his part, chairman of Jalud municipal council Abdullah Al-Haj said that the confiscation of the land “legitimizes settlement activity in the area”, pointing to the presence of three settlement outposts in the area.
