Landowner notified by Israel of confiscation orders

Feb. 9, 2012 5:59 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 10, 2012 2:20 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces have distributed confiscation orders for 68 dunums of Jabaa village lands southwest of Bethlehem in order to expand Beitar Illit and Gva'ot settlements, a landowner said Thursday.

Khaled Mashala told Ma’an he was surprised when he arrived to his land to find the notifications, which were signed by the head of Israel's civil administration.

The notifications give Mashala 45 days to object to the judicial authorities in Israel.

He added that he has all the necessary documents that prove that the land belongs to him, as he had inherited it from his grandfathers. However, the notifications say the lands belong to the government.
