After poisoning Palestinian water, Israeli settlers steal it

Days of Palestine, West Bank -Israeli Jewish settlers steal water of Palestinian villages near to illegal Jewish settlements in West Bank city of Bethlehem.

Palestinian residents in Bethlehem villages of Al-Rashaydeh and Rawa’en are suffering from a shortage of water as their supply is stolen by illegal settlers.

Head of Al-Rashaydeh Village Council Fawwaz Rashaydeh said the shortage was caused by the use of settlers in the nearby settlements.

Noting that the water supplies are weak, he said that priority is given to the settlements and Israeli factories and not Palestinian communities.

“At night, the Israeli settlers close taps of water pipes feeding the two Palestinian villages in order to let it serve only the Israeli Jewish settlers,” Rashaydeh said.

The head of the village council called for the responsible bodies to solve the problem of the two villages, reiterating this is the most important issue for the villages who depend on livestock for their income.

He noted that there are 20,000 sheep and 500 camels in both villages.
