Palestinians’ lands to be seized to open a road for settlements

Salfit (In Palestine Today) – The Israeli military authorities informed three villages in the Salfit district in the north of the West Bank of their decision to seize 17 dunums of their land.

According to Omar Samara, head of Haris village council, one of three villages affected by the Israeli decision along with Sarta and Brouqin, west of Salfit, the land is going to be seized to open a road to link the illegal settlement of Burkan with the so-called Cross Samaria highway.

Samara said however that they expect Israel to seize many more lands because the road to be built is going to eventually take a lot more land than what was reported.
