The Palestinian Information Centre -  25 May 2011

The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) has decided to annex 2000 dunums of Palestinian land in Salfit in the West Bank so as to expand Jewish settlements built in their vicinity.

Mayor of Qarawat Bani Hassan village in Salfit Abdulkarim Rayyan said on Tuesday that the targeted land is to the north and east of the village and is rich in almond, olive, and fig trees.

He said that the Israeli plan was announced by the so-called civil administration and the higher organizing body of the branch settlement committee.

Rayyan affirmed that more than 40 Palestinian families in the area own documents proving their ownership of the land and would defend their land with all available means and would resist that scheme.
