HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces blocked a demonstration in the south Hebron hills on Saturday, detaining at least 14 protesters in the area.

Local farmers and foreign activists had gathered at al-Qawawis village to protest Israel's plan to confiscate an agricultural area called Um Al-Arayes, according to popular committee spokesman Rateb Jabour.

He said the demonstration was blocked by Israeli forces and 14 activists and farmers were detained.

Nine of them were identified as Ismail Awad, 32, his wife and brother Saed, sisters Bushra, 22, and Shurouq Jabareen, 25, as well as Jameel Awad, 54, Bassam Jabareen 45, Khalil Awad Zein 65, Yousef Awad, in his 50s.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said the area remained a closed military zone after a demonstration on Friday, and several were being held at the scene for entering the area.

On Friday, Palestinians protested against land confiscation in the south Hebron hills in nearby Susiya.

Show the world your land registration deeds! If you've got them. Check out the Ottoman Turks Land Deeds for why you haven't got a deed, nor why you weren't registered then AND now. Tell the world the truth, just for a change. Try that.

Otto - I don't know whether your post is aimed at Israeli occupation forces, or Palestinians being dispossessed of their land (the latter, I assume) but I think you'll find that a lot of title deeds were kept in Jerusalem after the armistice in 1949, then either "lost" or destroyed after 1967.
