Newspapers Review: Demolitions in the West Bank, appropriation of land for settlements focus of dailies

RAMALLAH, Tuesday, November 29, 2022 (WAFA) – The wide-scale Israeli demolition of Palestinian-owned structures in the West Bank as well as plans to appropriate thousands of dunums of Palestinian land for Israel’s settlement enterprise were highlighted on the front page of the three Palestinian Arabic dailies published today.

Al-Ayyam and al-Hayat al-Jadida dailies highlighted the demolitions and orders for demolition in the Hebron, Salfit, and Jerusalem governorates, while the third daily, al-Quds, which also reported on the demolitions, highlighted as its main front-page story the appropriation of thousands of dunums of land in order to legalize the settlement outposts as millions of Israeli shekels were allocated to develop them.

The other two dailies also reported on plans to seize Palestinian land for the benefit of the illegal settlement enterprise in Israel, which al-Hayat al-Jadida said is spearheaded by the fascist Israeli lawmaker Itamar Ben Gvir.

Al-Ayyam said the Israeli army detained human rights defender in Hebron, Issa Amro, who heads the Youth Against Settlements, for posting a video that showed Israeli soldiers assaulting an Israeli activist.

The dailies also published statements from King Abdullah of Jordan and the Algerian president in support of the Palestinian cause on the occasion of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, which coincides today, November 29, the 75th anniversary of the passage in the United Nations of the Partition of Palestine Resolution 181 that caused the ongoing Palestinian dispersion and refugee crisis.

Al-Quds quoted Israeli reports saying that settler attacks against Palestinians have multiplied.

The three dailies also reported on the World Cup 2022 in Qatar and had reports that the Palestinian flag was very visible in all the games despite the fact that Palestine was not playing, as reported in al-Ayyam.
