NABLUS, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) has notified farmers in Jurish village, south of Nablus, that their land would be confiscated within 45 days and that they should evacuate it.

Ghassan Daghlas, monitoring settlement activity north of the West Bank, said that a family owning 20 dunums of cultivated land was served a notice to the effect while a group of other citizens were told that water wells they use to irrigate their land in the same village would be destroyed.

He noted that the IOA was escalating its targeting of Palestinian land in the West Bank area “C”, which is under full Israeli control according to the Oslo accords.

He noted that the area “C” constitutes 60% of the West Bank and Palestinians living in it constitute 5% of the population while the rest are Jewish settlers.

Daghlas charged the IOA with exchanging role with the Jewish settlers in terrorizing the indigenous inhabitants into deserting their land to facilitate annexing them to the Jewish settlements.
