As part of a new plot to seize further Palestinian lands, the Jewish National Fund, a Zionist organization, has initially agreed to allocate 100 million USD to register the Palestinian lands in East al-Quds and the West Bank in name of settlers.
The new plan could lead to the eviction of further Palestinians from their homes in the West Bank and East al-Quds.
According to Israeli Peace Now group, the establishment is encouraging settlers to confiscate more Palestinians lands. The Peace Now noted that the right-wing regime of Israel is seeking to seize more Palestinian lands through the Jewish National Fund.
The fund covers about 17,000 properties, most of them inhabited by Palestinians. Observers say this is the same scenario carried out earlier in the neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah in al-Quds. Palestinian families are fighting legal battles to prove their ownership of the properties amid Israeli efforts to evacuate them forcefully from their homes.
The Jewish National Fund is a Zionist organization founded in 1901 to buy and develop land in Ottoman and Mandatory Palestine for Jewish settlers. Earlier this year, Israeli media reported that Israeli authorities recruited the Jewish National Fund to secretly buy Palestinian land for settlers.
Palestinians warn that the move by the Jewish National Fund is another proof for Israel ’s attempts to illegally seize more land in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem al-Quds by forced expulsion of real owners. They say, however, that they will never back down and they will continue resisting these Israeli plans.
