Letter to HeidelbergCement Regarding Nahal Raba Quarry Expansion

We are writing to request a meeting regarding apparent plans to expand the Nahal Raba quarry, located in the occupied West Bank on land confiscated by Israel in violation of international humanitarian law. The quarry is owned by Hanson, a subsidiary of HeidelbergCement...

We were therefore surprised to read in a report released last month co-written by Al Haq and SOMO that Hanson had in fact sought and received permission to expand its quarry operations by 98 dunams. The report further alleges that the land in question is privately owned by Palestinians...

Human Rights Watch has seen new evidence indicating that Hanson continues to deliver building materials to settlements from Nahal Raba quarry... this would deepen the company’s role in sustaining and expanding settlements...

In addition, Hanson continues to contribute to the sustainability of settlements by paying millions of dollars in taxes and royalties each year to the Samaria Regional Council and Israel’s Civil Administration.
