BETHLEHEM, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) has served notices for the confiscation of 68 dunums of Palestinian land in Jaba’a village to the west of Bethlehem, local sources said.

The sources said that Israeli occupation forces (IOF) accompanied representatives of the civil administration and handed four notices to a citizen in the village on Thursday notifying him that 68 dunums of his land would be confiscated.

Owner of the land Khaled Masha’la said that he owned official Ottoman and Jordanian papers proving his ownership of the land, adding that he would go to court in an attempt to abort the confiscation.

He said that the land is planted with 300 olive trees, adding that the IOF soldiers had damaged 980 olive and almond trees in the same land lot back in 2006.

Meanwhile, two Jewish settlers, escorted by IOF soldiers, tried on Thursday to seize a piece of land in Kafr Kaddoum village to the east of Qalqilia but were confronted by citizens who foiled their attempt.
