A water well that benefitted hundreds of Palestinian farmers in a West Bank village destroyed by Israel

QALQILYA, Monday, May 30, 2022 (WAFA) – A water well in the village of Ras Atiyeh, south of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilya, which has been benefiting hundreds of Palestinian farmers was today destroyed by the Israeli occupation forces, according to a local resident.

Mazouz Marabeh, a resident of Ras Atiyeh, told WAFA that soldiers broke into the western part of the village, destroyed the well and seized all equipment used to draw water from the well.

He said that by destroying the well, owned and operated by Ras Atiyeh Agricultural Cooperative, Israel has denied 400 farmers from benefiting from its water which they used to irrigate 4000 dunums of their agricultural lands.

Marabeh said Israel destroyed the well to prevent all these farmers from benefiting from its water.
