PNN\ Bethlehem\

Palestinians living in Ain al-Baida village,Tubas, West Bank, staged a demonstration on Wednesday against the occupation’s decision to cut  water supply to the village.

A member of the village council Fares Fakha told PNN that the occupation’s policy started by gradually reducing the amount of water that reaches the villagers, who are almost 1700 villager and most of them work in agriculture. He added that water supply went from 240 to 180 until it reached 30 cups per hour, causing damage to the agriculture especially with the high temperature. Another member of the village council said that the occupation cut off the water this morning at 8 o’clock completely.

He added that the occupation follows this systematic policy against the people of the village in particular, and the people of the Jordan Valley in general to displace them from their land.
