Israeli soldiers handed, Thursday, several residents of the Kufr Jamal village, south of the northern West Bank city of Tulkarem, military orders informing them that the army intends to confiscate large areas of their farmlands. The Palestine News & Info Agency, WAFA, reported that the soldiers came to villager’s lands while they were planting them, and handed them warrants and maps setting the lands that the military intends to confiscate.
The soldiers also told the residents that they will be coming back in the coming few days in order to “tour again in the area to mark the lands that will be confiscated”.
The lands in question are in Basin #6, privately-owned Palestinian lands planted with fruits and vegetables.
They are located close to the illegal Kochav Yair settlement that was built on lands that belong to residents of Falamia and Jayyous villages.
