Israeli army cuts water supply to Jordan Valley village

JORDAN VALLEY, The Israeli army today cut water supply to the village of Bardalla in the northern Jordan Valley after shutting down the water taps supplying the village with its daily water needs, according to member of Bardalla village council Darrar Daraghmeh.

He said soldiers raided the village and proceeded to shut the pipes supplying the village’s around 2000 population with their daily water needs without giving any reason for this action.

This is not the first time the army cuts water supply to villages in the Jordan Valley, said Daraghmeh.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he intends to annex the occupied Jordan Valley, which makes around 30 percent of the area of the West Bank. Palestinian development has been highly restricted in the Jordan Valley since its occupation by Israel in June 1967.
