Israel confiscates Palestinian land near Nablus

Feb. 16, 2014 7:54 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 17, 2014 6:19 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces confiscated Palestinian land in the northern West Bank on Sunday, a Palestinian official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian Authority official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that the Israeli Civil Administration seized four dunams (one acre) of land in the al-Wafra area between the villages of Burin, Tal, and Madma south of Nablus.

The confiscation will prevent Palestinian residents from reaching 300 dunams (74 acres) of their land, Daghlas said, without elaborating.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.
