Head of the Israeli ‘Civil Administration Department’ in Qalqilia area, informed dozens of residents of Jayyous, near the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, that the army intends to grab more of their lands in order to erect a road east of the Separation Wall.

Also, the army intends to close three gates of the Separation Wall leading to lands which belongs to the residents, two gates are in the west of the village and the third gate is located near Flamia village.

The residents fear that the new orders will completely bar them from reaching their farmlands.

A member of Jayyous village council said that the council in cooperation with Al-Quds Legal Center managed to obtain a ruling from the Israeli High Court to rehabilitate the agricultural road which was destroyed by the erection of the Wall.

The Jayyous village council considered the new military orders as direct violation of the high court riling.
