The Israeli military issued orders, on Wednesday, to seize 350 dunams (86 acres) of agricultural land in al-Khader and Artas towns, south of the southern West Bank city of Bethlehem, Hasan Breijieh, from the Commission for the Resistance of the Wall and Settlements said.

Breijieh stressed that the bypass road, planned solely for the purpose of settlement expansion, will make inaccessible the Palestinian owned agricultural land, adding that it will also take along with it 150 meters of land on both sides, the Palestinian News and Info Agency (WAFA) reported.

In related news, on Monday, Israeli forces stopped a land rehabilitation project near Ramallah, under the pretext that it is located in “Area C” under full Israeli military and civil control.
