Israeli soldiers annexed on Wednesday Palestinian farmlands near Homesh settlement, adjacent to the main Nablus-Jenin road.

The army claims that the annexed lands will be used to construct a military camp in the area.

Mr. Hussein Salem, secretary of Bazaria village council, said that soldiers informed residents of the village, and the village of Borqa and al-Siele, of the annexation orders, and instructed them to remain home on August 5, 2005 for two weeks, which is apparently the period needed to construct the camp.
