Israeli settlers dump wastewater into planted land

HEBRON, Israeli settlers Tuesday dumped wastewater at an agricultural land belonging to a Palestinian family in the town of Beit Ummar to the north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, said a local official.

Yousef Abu Maria, an anti-settlements activist in the town, told WAFA settlers from the nearby illegal Israeli settlement of Gust Etzion dumped waste water into an agricultural land planted with grapes to the north of the town in an attempt to force the Palestinians to abandon their land as a prelude to seize it for the benefit of settlement expansion.

He maintained that at this time of year, farmers in areas adjacent to the illegal settlements established to the north of Hebron suffer from settlers’ violations and attacks against them, which inflicts heavy losses on them.
