Israeli occupation forces demolish water reservoir used for drinking and irrigation

NABLUS, Thursday, July 15, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Thursday demolished a water reservoir set up on lands belonging to the villages of Beit Dajan, to the east of the occupied West Bank city of Nablus, according to local sources.

Tawfiq Haj Mohammad, an activist, said that the Israeli forces raided the village and demolished the water reservoir that had a capacity of 500 cubic meters of water and was used for drinking and irrigating purposes, noting that it belongs to the village council.

He added that a previous decision to demolish the tank was halted through legal institutions, but Israeli authorities returned today and demolished it while it was full of water resulting in the water flooding and damaging nearby lands.

Haj Mohammad said that the village suffers from a water shortage problem and that the Israeli authorities sabotage any projects that aim to solve this issue.
