Hamas urges Arab League, OIC: act against Israeli land theft
GAZA, (PIC)-- The Hamas
Movement called on the Arab League and the Organization of
Islamic Cooperation to intervene to curb the Israeli regime
and its settlers from appropriating more Palestinian
property and lands in the occupied territories of the West
Bank and Jerusalem.
Israeli land theft
In a press release, Hamas stressed that the Israeli occupation's appropriation of Palestinian lands and real estate and its support for the settlers to own them illegally are blatant acts of theft and a desperate attempt to falsify Palestinian history.
The Movement also condemned the Israeli intent to build a military college on the Mount of Zeitoun (Olives) as a crime and said it would fail to change the fact that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Palestine.
For their part, Palestinian lawmakers from the West Bank warned that Israel started to issue title deeds to Palestinian property and real estate for Israeli companies in order to prevent the Palestinians from raise objections against them.
The lawmakers added in a press release that the Palestinians would fail to file legal objections against such Israeli step because the owners are companies and the Israeli courts reject any Palestinian objection in this regard.
They affirmed that Israel wants through such step to impose further fait accompli in the occupied Palestinian territories.
They highlighted that Israel's use of sly moves and means of fraud to circumvent the law in order to sieze more Palestinian property and lands can never revoke the Palestinians' right to them.
The MPs added that all the documents and contracts issued by and under the occupation are void and illegal in accordance with international law.
