University, Land and Water Commission to Cooperate on Land Protection

The Chairman of Land and Water Settlement Commission, Mousa Shakarneh, met on June 13, 2016 with President Abdul Latif Abu Hijleh. The two institutions discussed approaches for supporting land right security and the rights of access to land by improving land tenure.

The meeting was attended by Vice President for Planning and Development Mirvat Bulbul, Dean of Students Affairs Mohammad Al Ahmad and the Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Technology Khaled Abaza.

Both parties agreed on the importance of preserving and protecting the rights of land ownership and other consequent rights of people by surveying and registering lands in land registers.

Abu Hijleh said that the university is an active supporter and protector of Palestinians rights especially amid the constant Israeli violations on Palestinian lands. He assured the university’s willingness to cooperate with the commission to further improve land security tenure in Palestine.
