Israel Has No Legal Right to Offer Land Tenders in West Bank

• http://www.globalresearch.ca, By PNN

Adalah, the Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel, sent a letter to senior Israeli officials on 23rd of May, urging them to cancel open tenders offering Palestinian lands declared as state property in the West Bank because Israel has no legal authority over the 1967 occupied territories.

Lawyer Suhad Bishara, director of Adalah's Land and Planning Rights unit, wrote in the letter to Israel Land Authority (ILA) director Shimron Adiel, construction ministerYoav Galant, finance minister Moshe Kahlon, and attorney general Avichai Mandelblit that

"the ILA does not have the legal authority to offer land tenders in the West Bank."

During 2016 and 2017, the ILA published open tenders for available plots of land in illegal West Bank settlements including Givat Ze'ev, Ma'ale Adumim, Alfei Menashe, Ariel, Beitar Illit, Karnei Shomron, and Oranit.
