IOF to raze EU-funded water tanks in Beit Ummar town


The Israeli occupation army on Wednesday afternoon informed Palestinian citizens of its intention to remove their agricultural water tanks in Beit Ummar town, north of al-Khalil city.

Media activist Mohamed Awad reported that an employee from the civil administration of the Israeli army escorted by soldiers handed demolition notices against four water tanks in the areas of Beit Zatta, al-Ferdaws, and Thagrat al-Shabk to the north and east of the town.

Awad told the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) that those tanks belong to citizens from the families of Abu Mariya and Barghit.

He pointed out that those agricultural tanks were built as part of a project funded by the European Union (EU) to develop Palestinian water sources and agricultural lands in the West Bank.
