Under the false pretext of state-owned, the Israeli army prevents Palestinians from planting their lands

NABLUS, Saturday, December 19, 2020 (WAFA) – The Israeli army today prevented Palestinians from planting olive trees in their lands in Jaloud village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, under the pretext it was "state land," according to a Palestinian official.

Ghassan Daghlas, in charge of the settlements file in the Palestinian Authority, said the soldiers refused to allow the landowners to reach their lands located on the outskirts of the village and some 200 meters from Jaloud secondary school, claiming the land was state-owned.

However, the landowners refuted the army’s claim and said the land was privately-owned and that they have the documents to prove it.

The Israeli occupation authorities often use false pretexts to expropriate land in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.
