Israel recognises stealing Palestinian land for settlements

Days of Palestine -

Days of Palestine, Jerusalem -Israeli authorities have recognised illegally expropriating Palestinian land in occupied West Bank in order to expand illegal settlement of Ofra.

Israeli authorities admitted to the Israeli High Court of Justice “mistakenly” expropriation of 45 dunams (0.05 square kilometres) of privately owned Palestinian land to expand the settlement of Ofra near the Palestinian neighbourhood of Silwad, east of Ramallah.

The Israeli authorities also said that the Israeli government is currently preparing a new plan that excludes the Palestinian land on which a number of settlement units were built.

The recognition came after a group of Palestinians petitioned against the expropriation of the land supported with a document including an Israeli recognition that part of the land was “mistakenly” confiscated.

Lawyer Tawfiq Jabareen said many illegal settlers are living on the land.

He said he expected the land owners to file a petition calling for the evacuation of the settlement units.

Across the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, there are around 300 illegal Israeli settlements with around 700,000 illegal Israeli squatters living in them.
