Israel seizes 1,500 dunams west of Bethlehem
Today, Tuesday, Israeli forces seized 1,500 dunums of land from the villages of Husan, Wadi Fukin, and Al-Jabaa, in the Bethlehem Governorate, for settlement purposes.
The director of the Office of the Wall and Settlement Resistance Commission in Bethlehem, Hassan Barijiyah, reported that the occupation forces had seized, according to a military decision bearing the number RJ5-465-3-8, 1,500 dunams of the lands of Husan, Wadi Fukin, and Al-Jab’a, in favor of constructing a settlement road.
Brijiyeh pointed out that this road will have disastrous effects in terms of stealing and destroying more citizens’ lands, creating setbacks to the settlement road, its negative effects on the Palestinian environment in general, and the clear impact on the western countryside of Bethlehem Governorate.
