The Israeli occupation army on Sunday annexed around 47 dunums of Palestinian-owned land in ad-Dhahiriya town, south of al-Khalil province.
Chief of the town’s municipal authority Rateb al-Hawareen said that a military order issued by the regional commander stated that 47 dunums and 261 square meters of land near ad-Dhahiriya crossing would be seized for military purposes.
Hawareen affirmed that the annexed land belongs to the family of Abu Allan, who intends to file a legal objection against the military order.
The Israeli army claims it will use the land to expand the crossing and set up new security fortifications in the area.
