Israel occupation to seize large swaths of Palestinian lands

Occupied Jerusalem (In Palestine Today) – Israeli occupation authorities notified Palestinian landowners of a plan to seize large tracts of their land, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, according to a local activist.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors colonial settlement activities in the northern West Bank, said Israeli forces handed notices to seize hundreds of dunums of land belonging to the villagers of Burin, Madama, and Asira al-Qibliya, south of Nablus, in order to expand the colonial settlement of Yitzhar and construct a new bypass road.

He added that the Israeli occupation authorities are dealing with Yitzhar, notorious for its hardcore religious community, as a town, and, as such, are reclassifying land surrounding it from agricultural to built-up area in order to expand the settlement.
