RAMALLAH, September 6, 2014 – (WAFA) – Presidential Spokesperson Nabil Abu Rudeineh slammed Saturday Israel’s decision to seize 2,000 dunums of privately-owned Palestinian land belonging to Yatta near Hebron.

Israeli occupation forces handed earlier a military order to the Palestinian residents of Bani Zeid Valley to the northeast of Yatta in southern Hebron informing them of their intentions to seize 2,000 dunums of land for military purposes, said a local activist.

Abu Rudeineh stated: “As long as Israel announces further orders to seize [Palestinian-owned] land in the [occupied] West Bank, it is destroying everything,  making  it inevitable for us to seek to convene the UN Security Council and accede to international organizations with the purpose of protecting the Palestinian land.”
