On 5 January, settlers from the Sosya settlement to the southeast of Yatta, started building a new road to the
west and south of the settlement. Palestinian Local Committee sources in the nearby Sosya village, which lies to the west of the settlement, said that for a third day the bulldozers were leveling and
damaging the land for the new road. The land which was targeted belongs to the Haddar, Halees and Nawaj'a families from the Palestinian village of Sosya. The road started to the west of the
settlement and runs towards the south. Tens of dunam of Palestinian-owned land will be stolen inside the area. The same sources stated that the total land is 150 dunam in size. Palestinian Land
Defense sources in Hebron report that as a result of this project and the consequential stealing of land, the Palestinians villagers will be isolated from their land and the future progress of the
village will be limited. It also will give the settlement the opportunity to expand, on account of the Palestinian land that will be stolen.
