BETHLEHEM, October 24, 2012 (WAFA) – Jewish settlers from the illegal settlement of Betar Illit Wednesday pumped waste water coming out from the settlement into Palestinian-owned agricultural land in the village of Nahalin, west of Bethlehem, according to a local source.

Head of Nahalin village council Osama shakareen said that the waste water stemming from the nearby settlement of Beitar Illit, built illegally on confiscated land from the Palestinian villages of Wadi Fukin, Husan and Nahalin, flooded large areas of the village land planted with olives, grapes, and almond trees, causing severe damage to the crops.

He said that this is not the first attack by settlers against the village residents, aiming to prevent farmers’ access to their land to pick their olives.

He appealed to the humanitarian organizations to intervene to stop these Israeli arbitrary measures by settlers against the village’s residents.
