Used by Palestinians, Israeli occupation forces destroy water wells in Tulkarem

September 21, 2022

Israeli occupation soldiers invaded, on Tuesday, the Ar-Ras and Kafr Aboush villages, south of Tulkarem in the northern occupied West Bank, and poured concrete in two groundwater wells used by the Palestinians.

Mohammad Majdoub, a Palestinian official said the Israeli occupation soldiers invaded the eastern area of the village before pouring concrete into a groundwater well and seizing a water pump and a truck owned by Palestinian civilian Ibrahim Shreim.

The occupation soldiers forced Village Council employees to leave the area after surrounding and isolating it, Majdoub added.

He also said the well was dug and prepared by the Town Council a year earlier to provide drinking water for dozens of families, especially after the Israeli occupation's Mekorot water company which controls Palestinian water resources in the occupied West Bank refused to provide the Palestinians with sufficient amounts of water.
