Group: Israel reinstating pre-Oslo policy of vast land confiscations – Ma’an News Agency 15.03.16
Peace Now says Israel has reinstated a policy of confiscating vast swathes of Palestinian land for settlement expansion in a trend not seen since the pre-Oslo period in the 1980s. The latest declaration applies to an area south of Jericho that is located deep in the West Bank, far beyond the Green Line and the separation barrier, and at the eastern edge of the corridor between Jerusalem and Jericho, Israeli control of which would split the West Bank in half and prevent the possibility of establishing a viable and contiguous Palestinian state.
