Israeli settlers flood Palestinian village with wastewater, damaging land and spoiling the olive harvest

NABLUS, Monday, October 19, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers today flooded Palestinian-owned lands in the village of Deir al-Hatab, to the east of the northern occupied West Bank city of Nablus, with sewage and wastewater, causing a problem for the local farmers harvesting the olives, according to a local official.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Bank, told WAFA that settlers from the illegal Israeli settlement of Elon Moreh flooded lands belonging to residents of Deir al-Hatab with wastewater damaging the trees as people are engaged in the olive harvest.

He said that most of this land is planted with olive trees, which poses a threat of losing this year’s crops.
