Activist: Israel to seize more land in Salfit district

SALFIT (Ma’an) — Israeli authorities issued a decision to seize 30 dunums of land belonging to Palestinians from Deir Istiya, near Salfit, activists said Thursday.

Rizik Abu Nasser, head of the popular campaign against settlements in Salfit, quoted the order as saying the land was being seized “for security reasons and to prevent terrorist operations.”

The mayor, Nathmi Salman, condemned the decision.

He said it was the third such order in a row to seize land from Deir Istiya.
