Israel seizes a large tract of Palestinian cultivated land northwest of Hebron

RAMALLAH, Monday, June 06, 2022 (WAFA) – The Israeli occupation authorities today seized a large tract of cultivated land belonging to Tarqumia town, northwest of Hebron, according to a local activist.

Member of the local committee in defense of land, Suleiman Jaafreh, told WAFA that Israeli forces handed several residents of the southern West Bank town notices ordering them to evacuate their olive and grape-cultivated land, which covers an estimated area of 600 dunums, purportedly for being classified as “state land”.

He added that the landowners have title deeds proving their ownership of the land while pointing that the move is intended to pave the way for the expansion of the nearby colonial settlements of Telem and Adora.
