Owner Nihad Da’as told LRC:

“Extracting rocks and manufacturing them into a construction material is what I do for living. Few days ago, I was surprised by the so called “Civil Administration” officer serving a notice to the Quarry and telling me to evict the area, despite the fact that I have ownership deeds that proves I own the land.”

Like many other villages in “Joret ‘Amra” , Hajjeh village suffers from continuous Israeli Assaults. since 2004 to this day, about 65 residential and agricultural facilities received halt of work notices on the pretext of building without a license, of which 12 facilities were already demolished. Noteworthy, the outline the occupation imposed on (377 dunums) of the village does not cover the population’s needs of a natural expansion, while on the other hand it bans construction in C area.
