Several armed Israeli colonial settlers reportedly caused flooding of Palestinian-owned grape farms, on Monday, in north of the occupied West Bank city of Hebron.

Local Palestinian media activist, Mohammad Awwad, told media outlets that for the second time in a week, several armed settlers from the nearby illegal colonial settlement of Gush Etzion, flooded grape farm lands in the Beit Ummar village, with large quantities of waste water, causing grape trees to flood, causing damage.

Awwad quoted grape farmers from the Palestinian families of Sabarna and Awwad, as saying that armed Israeli settlers have been intentionally flooding their farm lands with large quantities of waste water, over the past few years, causing a great deal of financial losses, due to damage of their grape crops.

The media activist estimated the size of those grape farms at more than 4 acres.

The southern West Bank city of Hebron is a major supplier of grapes across the occupied Palestinian territories, being of excellent quality for both consumption and export.
