Landscape eco-museum project in Battir

12:00 Jun 28 2011 Battir, near Bethlehem

Battir, a village of some 4,000 inhabitants in the Bethlehem area, borders Beit Jala, the villages of Husan and Al Walaje and the Green Line in the north. Battir residents received numerous Israeli military orders aimed at seizing Battir's lands for various Israeli purposes. Some 900 dunams of land have been confiscated in the area of the "western countryside villages" for the building of the Separation Wall. Battir is also constantly exposed to the establishment of mobile checkpoints and a new settlement is planned on the hill between Battir and Al Walaje. The project Battir Landscape Eco-museum: Management and Conservation of Natural and Cultural Resources of Bethlehem Governorate aims to protect the territory from Israeli land confiscation. The establishment of a Landscape Eco-museum is the output of several years of participatory research and planning.
