Mahmoud Al-Ka’abneh told LRC: “I have been living in Ramun village for more than 12 years, and I bought a plot with a total area of 2 dunums. I set up two shacks on the plot, one of them is used as a residence, and the other one is a barn. This place is very important for me because I don’t have any other place to go.”.

Al-Ka’abneh asserted:The community is only 400 m at the western side of road Alon, and 1 km away from Ramun village houses. The Occupation is targeting us on a regular basis, most recently was a halt of work notice for our structures, which reflects the occupation’s intention to empty the land for colonialist expansionist projects.”

Noteworthy, according to the map attached to the Military Order “Appropriation and Right of disposal” which targets 230 dunums of land, on the pretext of using the plot for what they claim “public interest” and to create a dump site for illegal colonies. Noteworthy, the targeted area is in fact Palestinian agricultural lands, The dump site will be a source of pollution and illnesses at the heart of Palestinian beautiful nature.
