Israel to Expropriate Palestinian Land in Order to Build Sewage Treatment Facility

The Civil Administration asked nearby villages to be linked to the sewage plant in order to justify the confiscation, but they refused.

The Civil Administration intends to confiscate 180 dunams (44.5 acres) of land belonging to residents of the villages Ein Yabrud and Silwad, in order to build a facility for treating the sewage of the West Bank settlement of Ofra, according to the planning documents that were submitted to the Supreme Planning Council.
