PA: Israel to confiscate more West Bank land

June 23, 2013 12:32 P.M. (Updated: June 24, 2013 4:46 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israel's Civil Administration has sent letters to a number of Nablus residents informing them of decisions to confiscate their land for military use, said Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activity.

Landowners in the Awarta and Rujeib villages received the letters, which notified them of the confiscation of 80 dunums of land.

Both villages are near the illegal Israeli settlement of Itamar.

On Wednesday, Daghlas revealed that several such notifications by mail were being sent out to Palestinian residents in Nablus.

Daghlas said the unprecedented move was "dangerous."

Israeli forces usually deliver confiscation decisions and home demolition notices by hand.
