Israeli forces demolished six EU-funded irrigation pools used by Palestinian farmers in the northern Jordan Valley, on Thursday, locals told Ma'an News Agency.

Israeli military vehicles accompanied by bulldozers arrived in al-Jiftlik, where they demolished the pools used by Palestinian farmers, under pretext of "military order".

The construction of the pools was reportedly funded by grants from European donor countries.

The Jordan Valley makes up around 30 percent of the occupied West Bank, with over 90 percent of the area designated as Area C and off-limits to Palestinian construction.
