NAZARETH, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) has withheld a report prepared about one year ago on Derech Ha’avot outpost in illegal Gush Etzion settlements, south of Jerusalem and Bethlehem occupied cities, so as it would not be used in a court of law, Haaretz newspaper said on Monday.

This report stated that 60 percent of the land Derech Ha’avot outpost was established on was an agricultural property owned by Palestinians.

The newspaper added this outpost was built illegally in 2001 and became part of Gush Etzion cluster of settlements.

The Israeli government concealed that report in order to prevent the Palestinian owners of the land from having a tool strengthening their legal demand for evacuating the outpost in court, it added.
