Nesher Products used in Abu Ghneim/Har Homa 3

03May10

These photos were taken inside apartment blocks being built on land stolen from the Palestinian town of  Bethlehem in the occupied Palestinian Territory. The land was one of the last remaining woodland areas in the West Bank which served as a vital recreational area and natural reserve. It is now filled with high rises reserved for Israelis only.

A photo showing before and after and maps can be seen here:  http://www.poica.org/editor/case_studies/view.php?recordID=1207. The photos below show apartments being built as part of Har Homa, an illegal Israeli settlement.

More detailed current maps can be found at the UN website: http://www.ochaonline.un.org.

The photos are of the same Apartment block, over several floors. Some photos are from teh roof and balconies. The view is towards Bethlehem. I believe the houses on the hill are Palestinian, lying between Har Homa and Bethlehem.  Confirmation of this would be welcomed.
