April 14, 2020

West Bank - Tuesday, April 14, 2020 - Israeli occupation settlers flooded Palestinian-owned grape farms, on Monday, north of the occupied West Bank city of Hebron.

Local Palestinian sources reported that for the second time in a week, several armed settlers from the nearby illegal settlement of "Gush Etzion", flooded grape farmlands in the Beit Ummar village, with large quantities of wastewater.

Palestinian grape farmers said that armed Israeli settlers have been intentionally flooding their farmlands, estimated at 20 dunums, with large quantities of wastewater, over the past few years, causing a lot of financial losses, due to damage to their grape crops.
