  • Location: Ein Yabrud lands /North Ramallah.
  • Date: 01/04/2019.
  • Perpetrators: “Benjamin” settlement council and the Israeli occupation army.


The Israeli occupation army carried on rehabilitating a military road south “Neve David” settlement, on Silwad and Ein Yabrud North Ramallah.

Reportedly, the targeted road links bypass 60 to “Khallet Hamdona” area in natural block 13 , the road was opened in 2002, after grabbing 19 dunums of privately owned Palestinian lands from the Khallet and transforming them into military training camps, and closed military zones.

This road segment imposes threat on tens of surrounding agricultural dunums , especially that the occupation considers them state’s property, and its Palestinian owners were denied accessing to it.

Human rights activist, Eyad Hadad said that rehabilitating the road , is only the first step towards grabbing more lands for the expansion of “Neve David” settlement.

The Israeli occupation laid their hands on wide areas of Palestinian agricultural lands in several villages , for the favor of colonial expansion.
