Replicating the land appropriation scheme adopted after the Nakba, the Israeli occupying authorities classify as "abandoned" or "absentee" any property “whose legal owner […] left the area [i.e. the West Bank] prior to 7 June 1967 or subsequently.” A Custodian of Absentee Property is set up and given full authority to dispose of the property.
