Part of it lies beyond the Green Line (i.e. in Israel), and the larger part
of the remaining land is either controlled by settlers, used as firing
ranges or lies within the West Bank but in an area marked by the Hebron
Civil Administration as "Nature Reserve" and (here's the logic of it!)
sprayed with herbicides if the farmers plant it. Some of the latter area
lies very close to the villages themselves, but as far as I know the
villages have not been sprayed with any chemicals (hard to ascertain).
Settlers and firing ranges account for the majorioty of the expropriation.
Add to this the fact that the people have to hide whenever an IDF patrol
comes by, and the denial of land use is very comprehensive. I can't remember
off-hand, but I think a dunum is either 1/3 or 1/4 of an acre.
