West Bank settlers 'stealing soil' from Palestinians

Oct. 12, 2012 10:23 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 12, 2012 10:23 P.M.)
TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Israel's Civil Administration is ignoring the theft of soil from Palestinian land enclosed in illegal West Bank settlements, Israeli media reported Friday.

Israel's Haaretz daily reported that Almon settlement, near Jerusalem, has many large plots of private land within its fences and some are missing tons of soil worth 2,000 shekels per truckload.

Other locations where the alleged theft is taking place include Ibei Hanahal outpost, Givat Avigail, Beit El, Maaleh Mikhmash, the Shiloh Valley, and in Susiya, on lands belonging to the village of Yatta.

The report said police were aware of the phenomenon yet do nothing about it. A police official quoted in the report said there was no formal way of enforcing laws against this kind of theft.
