Civil Administration Officials Seize Tractor

Civil Administration officials seized a tractor from the town of Achiya, in the Judea region. The officials said that the tractor had been used to “plow land in illegal areas.” The Tazpit news agency said that several residents protested and tried to prevent Civil Administration officials from seizing the tractor.

In a statement, the officials said that although the land that the tractor was used to plow was part of the town of Achiya, “the use of that land has not been arranged and there is no land usage plan for it.” Residents said they would take legal steps to have the tractor returned to the town.
