NABLUS (Ma'an) -- The Israeli government issued confiscation orders to Palestinian land owners in Nablus on Monday to seize over 300 dunams (74 acres) of land to expand nearby illegal settlements, an official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that the Israeli government issued the seizure orders to landowners in the Ras Mues and al-Khafafish areas near the village of Jalud.

The land is located between the illegal Shilo settlement and outpost of Shvut Rachel and will be used to build a Jewish cemetery, school and farm, Daghlas said.

The land is owned by Tawfiq Abdullah al-Hajj Muhammad and his brother Ahmad.

Israel has begun work on 10,509 housing units in illegal settlements while simultaneously demolishing 146 Palestinian homes since peace talks began in July.

Since 1967, Israel has established over 150 settlements and some 100 outposts in the occupied West Bank, with a settler population of 520,000, according to OCHA.

Over 43 percent of land in the occupied West Bank is allocated to settlement local and regional councils.

@1)William - It is indeed the West propping up Israel, a first world country, with the US providing more aid for it than for any so-called third-world country. It certainly is diabolical. In years to come many will question the reason for the great silence in the face of this horrendous injustice. If this isn't a crime against humanity, I do not know what is.

each day new crimes. this is the strategy to make Palestinianss hopeless, aggressiv, to refugees ..... - this army, these settlers, these politicians are perfect in showing others, that they are in their eyes nothing, not human beeings, even not animals, only nothing. But this strategy will fail and the day will come.

Actually, "Shame on the on the world for propping up" the PLO, that: - attacked Olympics Games in Munich, - bombed a PanAm Jet over Lockerbie Scotland, - attacked an Italian cruise ship in Egyptian waters, - today continues to give international donations to compensate the families of dead terrorist murderers, and - in the future will forever continue using terrorism and murder, to achieve its genocidal goals, as other options fail !!!!

Land is in Area C where Israel has the legal right to build per the Oslo accords signed by Arafat and Company.

#8 You are factually inaccurate. 1) The Black September Organization had no ties to Fatah or the PLO. They acted independently. 2) Pan Am 103 hijacking wasn't done by PLO either. Go ask your propped up Libyan allies about that one. 3) The Achille Lauro wasn't attacked by the PLO either. It was attacked by the Palestinian Liberation Front (PLF) which eventually became the PFLP. No ties to Fatah or PLO. Do your research before you open your mouth.

*8 - as well as being inaccurate, I see you didn't mention the USS Liberty attacked by Israel and the illegal boarding in international waters of ships in the flotilla bringing aid to Gaza!
