Press Release Regarding Israel’s Decision To Confiscate 2,340 Dunams Of Land In The West Bank , 16.03.2016

No: 65, 16 March 2106

We strongly condemn Israel’s decision to confiscate 2,340 dunams of land near Ariha in the West Bank, which has been under its occupation since 1967.

The decisions taken by Israel to enlarge its illegal settlement areas are null and void. Israel should put an end to such activities undermining the basis for a two-state solution, which is the only way to establish lasting peace in the region.
