According to a report by EU-backed left-wing NGOs B’Tselem and Kerem Navot, Israel solidified its hold on Area C of Judea and Samaria by establishing 41 herding outposts during Trump’s four-year tenure.
An organized land-grab campaign
Area C is the region of Judea-Samaria that is mainly inhabited by Israelis but is also home to several Arab villages. The area is the current target of an organized land-grab campaign by the Palestinian Authority to illegally establish facts on the ground and populate tthe area. The objective is to prevent Israelis from expanding their towns and villages.
Terrain for farming or herding.
In a report on construction set to be published on Tuesday, the NGOs claim of a new phenomenon where Israelis in Judea-Samaria established several modular structures at strategic points in Area C with a focus on using the surrounding terrain for farming or herding.

At a Zoom event, Etkes spoke of 65 Israeli outposts that were erected in the last decade under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s tenure. 24 of them were built to initiate new communities while 41 were built in the last four years that were slated for herding and agriculture endeavors.
