Israeli forces level land, issue confiscation notices in Salfit

May 25, 2014 5:44 A.M. (Updated: May 27, 2014 1:23 A.M.)
SALFIT (Ma'an) -- Israel bulldozers leveled Palestinian land in the central West Bank on Sunday, while soldiers issued notices to residents announcing the confiscation of their lands, a local popular committee member said.

Jamal Tawfiq told Ma'an that as Israeli forces leveled lands in the Thahr Sabha area of Kafr al-Dik village in the Salfit district, locals were informed that some 3,000 dunams (750 acres) of Palestinian land were slated for confiscation.

Israeli authorities -- who claimed to have received a court decision on the matter -- will confiscate privately owned land from the villages of Kafr al-Dik, Sarta, Bidya, and Broqin, Tawfiq said.

He told Ma'an the land slated for confiscation was declared a closed military zone.

A spokesman for Israel's Civil Administration did not answer calls seeking comment.
