DFLP calls for a national campaign to save the Plains areas continued annexation

IMEMC News - Saed Bannoura - February 06, 2008 - The Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) called for launching a comprehensive national campaign in order to save the Palestinian Plaines areas, in the Jordan Valley, from the ongoing Israeli settlement expansion and annexation which aim at removing the residents from their lands.

The Jordan Valley areas are known as the Fruit Basket of Palestine as they used to provide the Palestinians with fresh fruits and vegetables planted by the residents there. But Israel escalated its settlement activities in the area and isolated it from the rest of the occupied West Bank.

Bassam Muslimani, member of the Central Committee of the DFLP, stated that the Israeli occupation bulldozed farmlands and residential areas used by Bedouin families in addition to destroying dozens of building and constructions in order to force the residents out and construct settlements in the area.

Al Muslimani added that this plan is similar to the Israeli plan which Israel started implementing in the Arab towns around Jerusalem and in the Arab city itself.
