Israel Notifies Farmers it Plans to Seize their Land

WAFA FEB 22 2012

HEBRON, February 22, 2012 (WAFA) – The Israeli authorities Wednesday informed Palestinian farmers from Beit Ula, a town northwest of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, of its intention to take over about 20 dunums of their land, according to a local activist.

Coordinator of the popular committee against the wall, Isa al-Omla, told WAFA that farmers found notices on their land put there by the Israeli authorities informing them that they should leave their land and remove everything on it because it will soon be expropriated under the pretext that the land is state land.

The notices, he said, gave the farmers 45 days to file a complaint at Ofer military camp, near Ramallah, or else the army would evict them by force and force them to pay costs of their eviction.

One of the land owners, Nader al-Omla said that the Israeli authorities aim to force Palestinian farmers to leave their land in order to seize it for the benefit of expanding the Apartheid Wall and prevent urban expansion.
