West Bank: Israel seizes 170 dunums east of Bethlehem

The Israeli authorities seized 170 dunums (a dunum is equivalent to a thousand square metres) of Palestinian land in the Arab Al-Taamra area, east of the city of Bethlehem, in the south of the West Bank, under the pretext that it is state land.


The Wall and Settlement Resistance Commission said that the seizure is the third operation under the same pretexts since the beginning of this year, bringing the total land seized by the occupation to 11 thousand dunums of Palestinian land in Jerusalem, Nablus and Bethlehem.


The Commission said last Saturday that the area of Palestinian territory controlled by the occupation amounted to 2,380 square kilometers, equivalent to 42% of the total territory of the West Bank, and 69% of the total areas classified as (C).
