Report on Israeli Settlements

Haaretz has the details on the latest Peace Now report on Israeli settlements. Despite slightly different figures the report is fairly consistent with the Times story done last November and is quite telling for obvious reasons.

A report issued Wednesday by Peace Now claims that 32 percent of land held for settlement and outpost use is private Palestinian property, as is 24 percent of the land on which the settlements are actually built.

The organization says the report is based on "official figures" from the Israel Defense Forces' Civil Administration.
