IOA-confiscates-138-dunums-north-of-Salfit The land area is estimated at 138 dunums and is planted with olive trees. The local activist Khaled Maali said that the targeted land is located near Barkan illegal settlement.
More than 550,000 Jewish settlers live in settlements across the West Bank, which has been under Israeli military occupation since 1967.
The construction of settlements and the transfer of the occupying power’s population into occupied lands is strictly forbidden under international law, and critics have likened the situation to “colonialism” and “apartheid.”
