BETHLEHEM, (PIC) Israeli occupation continue with plans to grab more Palestinian land to establish Jewish colonies and push Palestinians out. Occupation war minister Ehud Barak approved the establishment of a new settlement in Gush Etzion settlement bloc to the south of Bethlehem.

Maariv newspaper reported that the talk is about an old military base set up by the IOF in 1984 called Gafanot to the west of the settlement bloc. The abandoned military base lies on the road between Gush Etzion and Beit Shemesh inside the green line and that setting up a colony there would mean contiguity.

The Israeli occupation government decided in 1997 to give the military base a civilian nature, but difference between settlers, especially of Efrat as to who owns the land meant the base was left empty.

The interim head of the Etzion council Yaer Wolf contacted the Zionist war ministry last month to change the status of the land of the abandoned military base in favour of a new settlement to serve settlers with special needs and the war ministry agreed.
