Israel takes over 2300 acres of land near Jericho, declares it “state property”

Palestine News Network reports that “The Israeli government on Tuesday announced the seizure of 2340 acres of land in the Jericho area, central West Bank, claiming it ‘state land’. Israel Radio said the Israeli government has embarked on this confiscation despite pressures from the United States and the United Nations attempting to prevent it. In most cases, Israel announces thousands of acres as ‘state lands’, which are then granted to the illegal settlers.

Israeli occupation has confiscated thousands of acres in the Jordan Valley area, including privately owned lands, and then prevented the Palestinian owners from entering them, giving its ownership to the settlers. About a month ago, Israel announced the confiscation of 1,540 Dunams (380 acres), of land near Jericho in the Valleys, adding that the lands are in the final stages of being declared state lands.’ That seizure was the largest appropriation in the West Bank since August 2014”.
