  • Location:  Jalud village- Nablus
  • Date:  June 06, 2017

 The government of Israel declared on June 06, 2017 the ratification of a decision to establish new outpost called "Aimehai" as a replacement for Amona outpost.

Resources said that preparation for the construction of 102 residential unit are being taking place south Nablus governorate. The units will accommodate 40 Israeli families evacuated from Amona outpost.

It should be noted that Israel Ministry of Interior mentioned on its webpage that Higher Planning Council- Israel Civil Administration deposited the new master plan number 252/1 stating the change of use for 1920 dunums from agricultural to urban development.

The targeted lands are founded within the natural block number 4 from the lands of Turmus'ayya in Ramallah and the natural block number 16 from the lands of Jalud village. Noteworthy, the targeted lands are agriculturally unused and that colonists tried hard to take them over to establish outpost in there.

According to the team of field research at Land Research Center, the location of the new outpost will be between the colonies of Shevut Rahel and Adi Ad. This will create a geographical connection between both colonies and eventually result in the creation of a colonial bloc that separates the northern part of the West Bank from the southern one.
