The Jewish settlers digging so called “archaeology” on the Abu Haikal land have expanded their operations onto the neigbouring land belonging to the Joabe family. They have taken down part of their own new fence and built a ramp to get down to the next level of land. This now gives them acccess all around the hill to the Hadad house, Hani Abu Haikal’s house and the YAS house. They have an interest in all the old archaelogical digs from the 60’s and 80’s which were left open and never filled back in, many of which are on the al Natche family’s land. Emmanuel Eisenburg, head “archaeologist” has also expressed interest in digging on the Abu Haikal Olive orchard.
