IOA confiscates thousands of square meters of land

[ PIC 13/06/2012 – 08:53 AM ]

BETHLEHEM, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) has confiscated five thousand square meters (five dunums) of Palestinian land in Khader village, south of Bethlehem.

Ahmed Salah, the coordinator of the popular committee in the village, told Quds Press on Tuesday that the IOA left a notification in the land of Rana Tubaila telling her that she should evacuate the cultivated land lot.

He said that the IOA also ordered Rana to destroy the trees planted in the land and the water well that was built for irrigation purposes.

Salah said that the IOA claimed that the land was “state property” and warned Rana that she should carry out the order within 45 days or else face heavy fine and prosecution.

The coordinator underlined that the confiscation of this land lot would close the road leading to 1500 dunums of land in Khader village and would serve the scheme of linking Jewish settlements in southern Bethlehem to those on its western flank.
