Israel plans to confiscate 650 dunums in occupied Jerusalem


OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- The Israeli planning and construction committee has decided to confiscate 650 dunums of land in occupied Jerusalem to establish two garbage dumps.

A researcher specialized in settlement activity, Ahmed Sub Laban, said that the first junkyard would be established on 500 dunums in the area between Enata and Aisawiya, describing the area as a valley 745 meters deep.

The other plan envisages seizing 150 dunums of land between Kafr Akab and Bir Nabala to the north of occupied Jerusalem to establish another rubbish dump, he added.

Another researcher, Amran Al-Resheq, said that the two garbage dumps would negatively affect the environment, adding that the Israeli occupation authority did not care less about the health of the Arab inhabitants.
