Palestine: Israeli army uproots farmlands near Nablus

17th May 2013

IMEMC & Agencies: Israeli soldiers uprooted Palestinian agricultural lands that belong to a resident of Aqraba village, near the northern West Bank city of Nablus. The army claims that lands are “state property”.

Hamza Deeriyya, member of Aqraba Land Defense Committee, reported that Israeli soldiers, accompanied by a military bulldozer, uprooted the 25 Dunams in “Mahfouriyya” area, south of the village. The lands were planted with olive and almond trees.
Furthermore, the soldiers demolished an irrigation well, and walls built by Ayham Deeriyya, the owner of the lands.
The Israeli army claimed that the lands are state lands as they are close to the main “Samaria” highway, used by Israeli settlers and soldiers.
The owner said that he presented official deeds proving ownership of the lands, but the Israeli authorities rejected the documents.
