Settlers destroy portion of a water pipeline in Jordan Valley

JORDAN VALLEY, Friday, August 12, 2022 (WAFA) – Extremist Israeli settlers today destroyed a portion of a water pipeline in the village of Al-Farsiya in the northern Jordan Valley region, northeast of the occupied West Bank, according to local sources.

Muataz Besharat, a local activist, told WAFA that a group of Israeli settlers destroyed a portion of the pipeline used for irrigation by local Palestinian farmers, noting that the pipeline was built with funding from the European Union.

Israeli settler violence against Palestinians and their property is commonplace across the West Bank and is rarely prosecuted by Israeli occupation authorities.

There are over 600,000 Israeli settlers living in colonial settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem in violation of international law and consensus.
