TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Israel's Civil Administration is ignoring the theft of soil from Palestinian land enclosed in illegal West Bank settlements, Israeli media reported Friday.

Israel's Haaretz daily reported that Almon settlement, near Jerusalem, has many large plots of private land within its fences and some are missing tons of soil worth 2,000 shekels per truckload.

Other locations where the alleged theft is taking place include Ibei Hanahal outpost, Givat Avigail, Beit El, Maaleh Mikhmash, the Shiloh Valley, and in Susiya, on lands belonging to the village of Yatta.

The report said police were aware of the phenomenon yet do nothing about it. A police official quoted in the report said there was no formal way of enforcing laws against this kind of theft.

The very existence of settlers in the west bank IS theft.

***Alaa / Egypt 13/10/2012 10:46 The very existence of settlers in the west bank IS theft.** Pray tell from whom are they stealing it? That's interesting, seeing as to how it belongs to no one. The historical document the "Mandate for Palestine." laid down the Jewish legal right to settle anywhere in western Palestine, the area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, an entitlement unaltered in international law.
