The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) has confiscated new Palestinian land in Jalama village, north of Jenin, close to the borders with Palestine occupied in 1948, local sources said.
They added that the decision seized 16 dunums of village land that has been the target of repeated confiscation orders since the separation wall was built near it.
Jalama village is isolated from almost all directions by the separation wall while the Jalama crossing controls its northern entrance.
Meanwhile, Israeli occupation forces (IOF) rounded up nine Palestinians in the West Bank on Saturday night.
Locals said that the IOF troops detained three young men in Al-Khalil's Old City and six in Hawara village south of Nablus city after a storming campaign of houses.
The sources said that four of the six were in their teens.
