The so-called “Civil Administration Office”, the administrative branch of Israel’s illegal occupation, issued an order for the illegal confiscation of a privately-owned Palestinian land in Beit Jala city, northwest of Bethlehem, south of occupied Jerusalem in the West Bank.

Hasan Breijiyya, the head of Bethlehem’s office of the Wall & Colonization Resistance Commission, said the soldiers invaded the land near the western entrance of Beit Jala city and delivered the confiscation order.

Breijiyya added that Israel wants to confiscate the Palestinian lands to expand the “Tunnels Road” leading to Gilo illegal colony which was built on illegally confiscated lands in Beit Jala city and al-Walaja town.

All of Israel’s colonies in the occupied West Bank, including those in and around occupied East Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention in addition to various United Nations and Security Council resolutions. They also constitute war crimes under International Humanitarian Law.
