Residents of Occupied Golan in Syria Vow to Confront Israeli Attempts to Steal Their Lands
The residents of the occupied Golan attending a meeting in Majdal Shams, which was organized by civil and religious activists in the occupied Golan, stressed that they will stand together to stop Israel’s construction of the wind turbines project in farmlands surroundings the villages of Majdal Shams, Masada, Ein Qunya, and Baqaatha, lands, stressing that the region belongs to the Syrian people of the occupied villages.
“The project will have adverse effects on people’s health and the environment, and will damage crops and orchards that locals rely on to make a living,” Ghassan Shaalan from Ein Qunya village said.
Another resident of Occupied Golan from Masad, Hayel Masoud, said that the coming days will witness a public activity by locals to express their complete rejection of the project.
Sleiman al-Maqt from Majdal Shams also said the people of Golan will thwart this project just like many oppressive practices before it.
The Israeli authorities plan to build a new settlement project by constructing 45 large wind turbines for generating electricity in the occupied Golan. The project would entail confiscating over 6,000 dunams (6 square kilometers) of farmlands that belong to the people of the aforementioned villages.
