’Israel’ Okays Draft Bill to ’Legalize’ Settlements on Private Palestinian Land
An "Israeli" ministerial committee approved a draft bill to allow settlers in the occupied West Bank to remain in homes built on private Palestinian land. The country's attorney-general said the bill is legally flawed.
The bill was okayed unanimously on Sunday, and stated that the Zionist government could confiscate land in exchange for compensation.
The vote is believed to be aimed at avoiding the evacuation of the Amona settlement in the West Bank by December 25 ordered by the country's Supreme Court.
About 40 families live in Amona on the territory, which is privately owned by the Palestinians.
All "Israeli" settlements in the occupied territories are regarded as unlawful by the international community.
The anti-settlement group Peace Now condemned the bill.
Before becoming law, the bill will have to pass through three readings in parliament, and also be approved by the Supreme Court.
The latest developments came after renewed efforts by the international community to resume the stalled talks between the Zionist entity and Palestine.
