The Israeli military, on Wednesday, distributed confiscation notices to Palestinian owners of hundreds of dunams of agricultural lands in Jab’a village, in the southern occupied West Bank city of Bethlehem, Palestinian WAFA News Agency reported.

Local sources said the lands to be confiscated are owned by the Masha’leh and Tous families.

Israeli forces delivered stop construction orders, on Tuesday, to several Palestinian-owned structures in Tuwani village and al-Mafqara village, in Masafer Yatta, southern occupied West Bank.

WAFA correspondent said that Israeli soldiers invaded the village of Tuwani and handed several residents orders to halt construction of a house, a residential tent, a tin-sheet residential structure, a shack, and a water well.

The army also ordered the removal of two residential tents, belonging to two brothers in Tuwani.

In the village of al-Mafqara, Israeli soldiers issued a notice to halt the construction of a tin-sheet residential structure.

Head of Tuwani village council, Mohammad Rabi, told WAFA that the aim is to force indigenous Palestinians off of their land, in order to expand existing illegal colonies.
