300 people living in Nabi Samuel, all of them in 10 houses most of which have only one room. Today’s residents once lived in more comfortable houses at the top of the hill around the ancient mosque, but in 1971 they were evacuated by the Israeli Authorities who allowed them to occupy the shacks further down the hill that had been abandoned by Palestinians who fled during the 1967 War. The people of Nabi Samuel are not allowed to build or develop their village which is located on land that has been decreed a National Park. One of the residents showed us a copy of a decree issued in 2005 which prevents planting of trees on the land of the National Park. (MW report 11.03.2013)
