Israel to Take Over Land near Salfit

SALFIT, February 25, 2012 (WAFA) – Israeli authorities issued a seizure order of Palestinian-owned land in Khallet Hadidah, a locale near Qarawat Bani Hassan, a village northwest of Salfit, for settlement expansion, mayor of Qarawat Bani Hassan Aziz Assi said Saturday.

He said the municipality received a copy of the seizure order that targeted 21 dunums near the illegal Rakan industrial settlement built on Palestinian land.

He said Israeli authorities regularly issue seizure orders against Palestinian land to expand settlements while they prevent Palestinian farmers from accessing their agricultural land, their only source of livelihood.
