Israel turns hundreds of dunams into nature reserve near Nablus

April 17, 2019 12:58 P.M. (Updated: April 18, 2019 3:06 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- The Israeli authorities turned hundreds of dunams of Palestinian-owned agricultural lands into a nature reserve in the eastern area of Khirbet Yanoun south of the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus, on Tuesday.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma’an that the Israeli Civil Administration confiscated hundreds of dunams of agricultural Palestinian lands from Khirbet Yanoun under the pretext that they are transferring them into a nature reserve, preventing Palestinians from entering the area.

Daghlas added dozens of Israeli settlers live around the area, pointing out that the confiscation comes as a first step towards the confiscation of more Palestinian-owned lands to serve Israeli settlers in the area.
