(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) West Bank, The West Bank's most fertile meadow is shrinking gradually as a result of construction licensed by the Palestinian ministry of local governance, according to the head of a local committee in Jenin.

Mousa al-Badawi, who chairs a committee representing the public in Jenin, said that "Palestine's food basket Marj Ibn Amir is at risk because of corruption,'' reported the Palestinian Maan news agency

The meadow's fertile land, he added, is being "bitten" by construction expansion which is "killing the agricultural land without any supervision or control despite all appeals and religious recommendations." According to statistics by the Jenin office of the Palestinian ministry of agriculture, Marj Ibn Amir produced 70 percent of the overall agricultural production of Jenin district in 2012

More than 100,000 dunams (25,000 acres) of land is cultivated in the meadow.
