The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) issued a report on Saturday revealing that 90% of the West Bank territories confiscated by the Israeli occupation have been allocated for settlement expansion.
The PLO National Office for the Defense of Land and Resistance of Settlement said the Blue Line Team of the Israeli Civil Administration has been drawing up maps with boundaries for Palestinian confiscated land in the West Bank so that construction projects and settlement expansion can be started.
The report issued by the PLO Executive Committee stated that the Blue Line Team conducted last year scans to implement 18 major expansion projects on 12,840 dunums of Palestinian-owned lands.
The PLO report mentioned that the Israeli Occupation Authority announced in September, 2014 that more than 35,000 dunums of the West Bank lands located near settlements were seized to set up military camps but then passed them on to settlements for expansion purposes.
