Israeli Authorities Order Construction on Road to Stop

12:00 May 6 2012 Beit Sorik (Bayt Surik)

JERUSALEM, May 6, 2012 (WAFA) – The Israeli authorities Sunday ordered residents of Beit Sorik, a village northwest of Jerusalem, to halt the construction work on one of the village’s agricultural roads, under the pretext of lacking a building permit, according to local sources.

They told WAFA that Israeli forces stormed the village, handed the local council in the village several notices to stop the construction work on the two-kilometer road, and confiscated a road roller compactor.

Villagers said that the road has been used for hundreds of years by farmers to reach their agricultural lands, which form the only source of livelihood, located on top of mountains and in steep valleys.

To be noted, the Israeli authorities have confiscated hundreds of dunums of agricultural lands for the benefit of the apartheid wall, preventing farmers from reaching their lands, as well as closed another road west of the village for the benefit of expanding an illegal settlement built on the village land and for building a railway link from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv.
