SALFIT, November 30, 2011 (WAFA) – Israeli bulldozers razed land and uprooted around 100 olive trees in Masha, a village northwest of Salfit in the northern West Bank, in preparation to expand the Apartheid Wall,land owner Hani Amer said Wednesday.

He told WAFA that he arrived at his land west of the village early in the morning and was surprised to find Israeli bulldozers razing his land. He expected that the razing started Tuesday evening.

“The new section of the wall aims to steal land in favor of expanding the settlement of Oranit,” said Amer.

He indicated that the area of the land, intended to be seized, is estimated at hundreds of dumuns and is owned by a number of village residents.

Amer called on international and humanitarian organizations in the Palestinian Territory and the Palestinian Authority to intervene and stop the Israeli aggression against his land.
