    JERICHO (Ma'an) -- The Israeli authorities delivered confiscation notices for hundreds of dunums of Palestinian-owned lands in the Jordan Valley, in the northern occupied West Bank, on Thursday evening.
    Mutaz Bisharat, a Palestinian official in charge of Jordan Valley's Israeli settlements file at the Palestinian Authority (PA), told Ma'an that the Israeli authorities delivered confiscation notices to residents in the al-Ras al-Ahmar area in the Jordan Valley.
    Bisharat added that about 1,079 dunums (267 acres) are under threat of confiscation, pointing out that the notice did not mention reasons of the confiscation.
    The Jordan Valley forms a third of the occupied West Bank, with 88 percent of its land classified as Area C -- under full Israeli military control.
    International rights organizations consider the continuation of the Israeli campaign which targets Palestinians in the Jordan Valley, whether though confiscations, demolitions or evictions under the pretext of holding military exercises, as a violation of international humanitarian law.Since the beginning of the 1967 occupation of the West Bank, Israel has confiscated hundreds of thousands of dunums by declaring it state land.Israeli authorities in 1968 banned Palestinians from registering their lands and subsequently took advantage of previously low rates of land registration to confiscate areas currently or previously in use by locals but not registered as such.The confiscated lands are then used to construct Jewish-only settlements on the land, while further confiscation often uses the pretext of the settlements' security.

    They are doing the same to their underdogs. No one learns from their history hence the irony.

    According to IMEMC, the IDF said the reason was "security considerations" and that the area is approximately 98,000 dunums, of which 1,138 are used for this purpose.

    As Ma'an notes, the Arabs were attempting to steal ("register") lands that were not theirs. Under international law (Article 5, Palestine Mandate) unoccupied state lands in the Mandate area, including the "West Bank", are specifically for Jewish settlement.

    Both Ma'an and IMEMC are thoroughly anti-Zionist; I'll leave it to you to figure out which one is lying - or is it both?

    Seems someone got locked in the old days...

    Ouch... Is it me or you just burned yourself with your "Palestinian mandate" by literally acknowledging the "Israeli endorsed Legality" of such actions...
    So...who is lying now?

    The 1947-67 Jordanian occupation of the area was illegal (see Article 6). So yes, "someone got locked in the old days" of thinking that Jews could only live, own, and thrive by the permission and sufferance of non-Jews.

    Well... not to be mean...BUt Israel is "Still" Existing and thriving because of Non-Jews...
    Aka the British crown... Aka the US... Aka the Evangelist... Aka The Palestinian lands... and so on...

    So...You are indeed still a pcs of the puzzle... that thrive because someone permitted you to be part of the big picture...

    So...No need to make yourself important... You are not... A simple man...Who happen to be born at a satisfying time... Nothing more, Nothing else...
