WZO gives Palestinian lands in Bethlehem to settlers

Pal land given away

Haaretz newspaper on Monday revealed that World Zionist Organization – settlement division gave 50 dunums of Palestinian lands in Bethlehem to settlers of Ma’aleh Rehavam settlement outpost to the south of the city.

The five dunums were given to the illegal outpost of Ma’aleh Rehavam in 2002 by the WZO settlement division even though the division had no rights to the land, according to newly discovered documents, the newspaper said.

The newspaper stated that settlers use the land in cultivation despite the fact that part of the targeted land is considered as a nature reserve agreed upon in the Oslo Accords which stipulates that both Israel and the Palestinian Authority must approve any changes made in the reserve.
