Palestinian Well Destroyed in Al-Walajah

24 May 2007

Israeli Occupation Forces forces brought eight jeeps and one bulldozer through the village of Al-Walajah, using extreme violence to destroy wells and farmland. They destroyed a well owned by Mohammad Saleh Abutiin, which provides the local community with essential water supplies for home use and for agriculture. The invasion has resulted in 10,000 litres of water being lost. In total the IOF destroyed two dunam of land which includes olive trees which are over 40 years old. Al-Walajah is a small village in the Betlehem district which will be completely surrounded by the Annexation Barrier if completed on its current path.
