Location:  Haris village-Salfit

Date: 08/06/2015  

Perpetrators: Planning and Construction Committee- Israel Civil Administration

Victims: farmer Ma’mon Dawoud


The Planning and Construction Committee- Israel Civil Administration on June 08, 2015 served famer Ma’mon Dawoud (72) a military order including a three day deadline to object a final demolition order that has been served on a agricultural land serving his land, which is located in the southwestern part of the village also  known as al-Dars area. 

According to the military order no. 391323, the Israel occupation on August 19, 2012 served a military order to demolish the agricultural road penetrating the citizen’s land.  The (150m*4m) road was previously served an “additional opportunity to object a demolition” order.

It should be marked that the agricultural road serves an area of 18 dunums planted with olives, taking into consideration that the Committee of State Property- Israel Civil Administration claimed the ownership of the aforementioned area and that the Committee delivered a military order to the farmer in that regard.

The targeted land is reported to be located 1km away from the Industrial zone of Burkan, which usually witness colonial expansion at the expense of Palestinian lands.
