HEBRON, Sunday, February 10, 2019 (WAFA) – Israeli forces raided the water pump rooms in the village of at-Tiwani, east of Masafer Yatta,  south of the southern West Bank district of Hebron, said a local official.

Head of at-Tiwani village council, Mohammed Rabe’ told WAFA Israeli forces, accompanied by staff from the Israeli civil administration, raided the water pump rooms in the village, and conducted search operations for the water pipelines feeding the eastern part of Masafer Yatta with water, in an apparent prelude to cut off water supply to residents.
