Israeli occupation authorities on Monday handed threats to uproot about 2000 trees and saplings in Haaris village northwest Salfit, West Bank, claiming that the land was “state property.”
Researcher Khaled Ma’ali told PNN that occupation handed the threats to the LandLord Amin Daoud, telling him that the land was confiscated. The case has been transferred to the Beit El settlement court for judgement, pointing that the landlord had papers proving property of land.
Ma’ali added that the threats came because the land annexed settlement Street of Amer Samera, claiming that it was now “Israeli” land property.
The land has been for 15 years planted with Olive trees and others.
The city of Salfit has been widely subjected to the land confiscation, as Israel prepares to expand the 24 settlements surrounding it on its own land. On February 3, Israeli settlers bulldozed over 50 dunums of Iskaka village west Salfit near the Za’tara checkpoint.
