Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) raided on Wednesday Ain al-Beida area in northern Jordan Valley. The IOF soldiers confiscated equipment used by farmers to pump drinking and irrigation water under the claim of lacking license.
The Palestinian activist in Jordan Valley, Mutaz Bsharat, told Quds Press that the confiscation was carried out in full disregard to an Israeli court precautionary decision to freeze a former order that stipulated halting using water in the area, claiming that it is a “state property”.
Bsharat opined that the confiscation ran contrary to the court’s decision. He pointed to several reports issued by international and humanitarian institutions on the Israeli persistence in targeting Palestinians in Jordan Valley district in order to make them leave their homes to allow room for Jewish settlers.
