The Israeli authorities issued on Thursday evening a decision for the seizure of large tracts of Humsa al-Tahta and Furush Beit Dajan land in the northern and central Jordan Valley, according to local sources.
Activist Aref Daraghmeh was quoted by Palestinian news agency WAFA as stating that Israeli authorities approved a decision to take over around 264.4 dunums of land in the said areas for military purposes.
Residents reportedly found a copy of the decision with an attached map left in the grazing land targeted for confiscation.
