BETHLEHEM, (PIC)– Israeli Occupation Authorities (IOA) began to build 300 housing units near the town of al-Khader, south of Bethlehem in the southern West Bank.

The occupation bulldozers started bulldozing the area of “Um Hamdan” to build 300 housing units, Ahmad Salah, Coordinator of the Popular Committee Against the Wall and Settlements in al-Khader, explained.

The Israeli army seized Um Hamdan area in 2000, where they established a military camp and check point, Salah noted, adding that this decision came within an Israeli project to convert 40 military camps into settlements.

He pointed out that the residents are banned access to their lands, and that the establishment of this settlement will contain 500 dunums belonging to Mossa family. He added that this settlement came within a systematic policy by Israeli officers who have confirmed that the “Gush Etzion” is part of the “Greater Jerusalem” plan.

Salah called for Palestinian and international serious attitude to stop the Israeli settlement plans in al-Khader village.
