Palestinian donates land for cemetery

Dec. 11, 2010 9:08 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 12, 2010 5:19 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A resident of Beit Ula, west of Hebron, has donated land to build a cemetery for the town to prevent its confiscation by Israel, the local popular committee said Saturday.

Jamil Mousa Al-A'dam donated three dunums of land in the Wad Al-Jalamun area which Israeli authorities are threatening to annex, the committee said in a statement.

Meanwhile, residents continued weekly activities Friday to protest the separation wall, planting on land under threat of confiscation, the statement said.

Beit Ula lies on the proposed route of the wall, and stands to lose thousands of dunums of land on which many residents depend for their livelihood.

The committee affirmed the right of residents to benefit from their land, and said it would continue to resist Israel's policy targeting the area.
