The Israeli army issued two military orders to annex farm lands owned by residents of Halhul village south of Hebron city in the southern part of the West Bank on Monday.Halhul municipality said that an Israeli helicopter dropped the military order sheets east of the village. The order states that the Israeli army confiscated two dunums of land that is privately owned by Ali Mousa, a farmer of the village.
According to the military order the land will be used as a military post to protect illegal settlers driving on the Jewish-only road known as road number 60, which is originally built on land stolen from the village and other nearby villages and towns.
The military order gave the owner of the targeted lands seven days to file a legal objection to Israeli court, a court which rarely gives Palestinians their rights. More often than not, if a court order is ruled, the Isaeli army does not obey the rulings of those courts.
