Further Settlements Announced

author Wednesday May 25, 2011 19:20author by Kevin Murphy - IMEMC and Agencies Report post

The Palestinian News and Informational Agency has reported that Israeli officials plan to confiscate 2,000 dunums worth of land in the Salfit area in the Northern West Bank near the city of Nablus.


The confiscated land will go to expanding two settlements in the area, Kiryat Netafim and Revava, according to Abdul Karim Rayyan, the head of Bani Hassan local council.

Rayyan claims that up to 40 Palestinian families have documents proving their ownership of the land and intend on challenging the confiscation of the land in Israeli courts.

The news comes on the back of announcements by the Israeli planning bodies that 1,500 new Jewish only housing units would be built in occupied East Jerusalem.
The families are appealing for international pressure to prevent the confiscation.
