Hebron settler 'plowing Palestinian field for land seizure'

Dec. 6, 2012 6:14 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 7, 2012 1:45 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- An Israeli settler is trying to seize 300 dunams of Palestinian farmland south of Hebron, an owner of the land said Wednesday.

Abu Iyad Housheyeh told Ma'an that a resident of the illegal Mitzpe Yair settlement outpost had been plowing his land for two days in preparation to sow it.

Housheyeh has filed a complaint to Israeli courts, which ordered that neither the settler or the owner of the land should access it.

A court hearing on Wednesday was postponed, Housheyeh said.

Housheyeh also filed a complaint to police against the settler for his failure to comply with the court order.

Police should implement the court order or allow the owners of the land to access their fields, he said.

All Israeli settlements are illegal under international law, and settlement outposts are also illegal under Israeli law.
