Israeli bulldozers destroyed water lines that supply tens of acres of Palestinian-owned lands in the northern Jordan Valley area. Moataz Basharat, a senior official who monitors Israeli settlement activities, told Anadolu Agency that “an Israeli bulldozer, accompanied by an Israeli army force, destroyed the water line that connects the Jordan Valley’s Ain Al-Sakut area,” Middle East Monitor reported. Basharat added that the destroyed water line used to irrigate 80 watermelon acres, adding that it had also been irrigating some 400 acres in Ain Al-Sakut. The targeted Palestinian lands, Basharat noted, were recently recovered by its owners from the illegal Israeli settlers. The landowners have not been notified ahead the destruction of the pipeline, the Palestinian official stressed. Israel frequently demolishes Palestinian homes and structures in the Jordan Valley area under the pretext of lack of permits.
