In the same time Israeli authorities notify Palestinians of demolition and stop-work in the area, Negohot colony that is founded on confiscated lands from Fuqeiqis village is witnessing continuous expansion from its western and northern sides at the expense of Palestinian lands.

At the legal level, the team of field research at Land Research Center guided the affected people to the methods of preparing a legal file to be used in the objection to military orders.
