IOF confiscates water tank, causes water crisis in village

12:00 Jun 7 2012 Wadi Al-Malih and Khirbat Farsiya

JORDAN VALLEY, (PIC)-- Israeli occupation forces (IOF) confiscated a water tank in Khirbat Farsiya in the northern Jordan Valley that carries water to the inhabitants.

The soldiers had confiscated three other tanks a few weeks ago causing an acute water shortage for the inhabitants.

Mohammed Daraghme said that the soldiers confiscated the tank from him while carrying it to the village and fined him 1700 shekels. They also warned him against carrying water to the area.

Inhabitants own thousands of cattle heads and depend on water tanks after the IOF prevented them from using the water springs in nearby Wadi Al-Malih.

In a similar act, IOF soldiers demolished five water wells to the west of Jenin in a fresh demolition spree in that area.

Locals said that the soldiers warned the owners of those wells against rebuilding them, adding that the act meant a total destruction of agriculture in hundreds of fertile dunums.
