Beit Jala

Palestinians in the western areas of Bethlehem district have received new confiscation orders amounting to 770 dunums of land, taken for the Apartheid Wall and the expansion of the colonies in the Gush Etzion settlement bloc. Villages throughout this area are being ghettoized between two Apartheid Walls - one to be constructed close to the Green Line and the other currently being constructed cutting immediately west to the city of Bethlehem. Encircled by settlements, which will thrive on the stolen land, this part of Palestine is being shaped into a hellish prison.




Al Bandak Stone, one of the oldest factories in Palestine, established in 1967, has been, like all Palestinian economic establishments, routinely targeted by Occupation forces in a continuing attempt to close down and destroy the factory. Al Bandak Stone has faced numerous assaults by Occupation forces over the last years, the most severe occurring during the invasion of Bethlehem in 2002. While the Occupation forces bombarded the nearby Aida Refugee Camp, they also targeted the factory destroying the ceiling and paralyzing one whole section of the facility.

Occupation forces continue building the Wall in the area of Rachel's Tomb, and beginning on Friday 19th March, the Occupation forces have started erecting concrete blocks in the fields near the Armenian convent. The Wall is expected to continue according to the path prepared by the Occupation bulldozers, passing around Aida refugee camp, confiscating 200 dunums for its path, and then to be connected to the sections completed on the main street near the northern entrance of Bethlehem.
