Israel confiscates hundreds of dunams in Hebron

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces have confiscated hundreds of dunams of Palestinian land in the Beit Ula town in northwestern Hebron claiming the property is "state land."

An Israeli court issued a confiscation order earlier in January to confiscate hundreds of dunams of land in the al-Mekhath and Attus areas in Beit Ula to "Judaize" Area C and empty it from its original residents, the coordinator of a local popular committee said.

Issa al-Emla added that owners of these lands have farmed them and resided on them since the Ottoman era, and that Israel started raiding and razing the lands in 1982 in preparation to confiscate them.

Al-Emla added that Israel was executing its plans to take over Area C, which is around 60 percent of the West Bank.

The confiscated lands belong to Usama Abu Nasir, Farid al-Latif Atrash al-Emla, Ahmad Abd al-Rahim al-Emla, Hamdi Abd al-Muti al-Emla, Harbi Abd al-Muti al-Emla, Muhammad Khalil Abd al-Aziz al-Emla, Issa Abd al-Hafez al-Emla and Fares Wahid Abd al-Aziz al-Emla.
