Jewish Settler Takes Over Land near Jenin

Palestine News & Info Agency - WAFA

JENIN, January 30, 2012 (WAFA) – A Jewish settler took over an agricultural land that belongs to a Palestinian in Nazlat Zeid village, located behind the Apartheid Wall, southwest of Jenin, a local source said Monday.

Coordinator of the National Campaign against the Wall, Abdelraouf Barre, told WAFA that a settler broke into the land a week ago, planted olive trees and fenced it under the pretext that he leased the land from the Israeli government.

Barre said that the Palestinian who owns the land was prevented from entering it since establishing the Apartheid Wall because he was not issued a permit.

Jewish settlers of Shaked and Hinnanit settlements continue to break into Palestinian-owned land that falls behind the Wall and which amounts to 120 dunums, complained residents of Nazlat Zeid, Ya’bad and al-Araqa, near Jenin.
