Israel to Take Over Vast Areas of Land near Bethlehem

12:00 Dec 31 2011 al-Khader

BETHLEHEM, December 31, 2011 (WAFA) – The Israeli military authority Saturday informed Palestinians from al-Khader, a town south of Bethlehem, of its intention to take over vast areas of land, according to an official in al-Khader town council.

He told WAFA that a Palestinian found a notice by the Israeli authority left in land west of the town stating the Israeli intention to take over hundreds of dunums of agricultural land which will isolate the town from the rest of its land, estimated at 20,000 dunums.

The Israeli decision will prevent landowners’ access to the land; and if they were allowed, they would need a special permit, he added.

Al-Khader is being subjected to a vicious attack by the Israeli military authority to build the Apartheid Wall in the area, as a Palestinian family from the town was informed earlier Saturday that the Israeli authority will seize 20 dunums of their land.
