Israel violates its own law

An Israeli peace group has stated that Israel is clearly violating her own laws by allowing setlers to remain on land stolen from Palestinians.
“The data was leaked to Peace Now via an official in the Civil Administration. The group says the government had refused to give this information to it.
The group says that the data it has received has been “hidden by the State for many years, for fear that the revelation of these facts could damage its international relations”.
According to the report, 86.4% of the Maale Adumim settlement block, the largest in the West Bank, is built on private Palestinian land.”

The study by Peace Now shows that 40% of settlement land is Palestinian owned.
