The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) has announced its intent to seize hundreds of dunums of Palestinian land in Salfit province, north of the occupied West Bank.
Local official Ghassan Daghlas said that the IOA recently delivered notices to Palestinian municipal councils in Salfit province informing them of its intent to annex hundreds of dunums from their towns and villages in order to use for settlement activity.
In recent months, the IOA have annexed thousands of dunums of Palestinian land in the West Bank and Jerusalem for the purpose of expanding settlements and Jerusalem and announced plans to build roads, walls and hundreds of housing units for Jewish settlers.
At the same time, the IOA embarked on carrying out widespread demolitions against Palestinian homes and structures in the occupied Palestinian territories.
