Israel seizes Palestinian farmlands near Nablus

The Israeli occupation authorities on Monday seized vast tracts of Palestinian farmland in seven villages south of Nablus in favor of the construction of a new settler road.

Anti-settlement activist Ghassan Daghlas said that the Israeli authorities on Monday ordered the confiscation of about 406 dunums of privately-owned Palestinian land in the villages of Burin, Huwara, Beita, Awarta, Yatma, al-Sawiya, and Yasuf, south of Nablus.

Daghlas affirmed that the new land seizure and road construction move means entrenching the separation between the Palestinians and Israeli settlers, and serves as a prelude to bringing more Israelis to settle in the West Bank.
