Israel to Build New Settlement near Hebron

HEBRON, July 3, 2014 (WAFA) – Israeli bulldozers Thursday razed over a 50-dunum area located near the illegal Israeli settlement of Karmie Zur, north of Hebron, as a prelude to confiscate it, according to a local source.

A local resident told WAFA that the land, located in Area C under full Israeli control, is his private property. He said Israel is razing the area as a prelude to establish a new settlement named “Zur Shalom” at the expense of the land of local residents in the nearby towns of Beit Ummar and Halhul.
