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.
