Report: Israel to evict Jericho farmers

Aug. 22, 2012 6:50 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 23, 2012 2:33 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities on Wednesday handed out eviction orders to farmers near Jericho in the central West Bank, the PA's official news site reported.

Farmers in Deir Hajla and al-Zour were ordered to evacuate 3,000 dunums of land within 45 days, Wafa reported.

Ahmad al-Fares, head of the agriculture department in Jericho, said the land belonged to Waqf, the Muslim religious trust, and had been leased to farmers for decades.
