BETHLEHEM, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) has confiscated 431 dunums of cultivated land in Nahalin village to the west of Bethlehem.

Osama Shakarne, the head of the municipal council in the village, said that the civil administration, affiliated with the Israeli army, informed the inhabitants that their land would be expropriated.

He said that the land, to the west of Nahalin, is cultivated with olives, grapes, and almonds and is near to a settlement.

Shakarne said that the land is owned by most of the families in Nahalin, adding that the land seizure would deprive the inhabitants of farming since many other dunums were earlier seized for building the racist, separation wall.

The municipality chief said that Jewish settlers in the nearby settlement, after the confiscation order, opened their waste water pumps on that land on Wednesday evening in an early attempt to control land and destroy its agricultural yield.
