BETHLEHEM, (PIC)– A group of Jewish settlers pumped, on Thursday morning, wastewater from a settlement in the west of Bethlehem in southern West Bank, onto Palestinian agricultural land.
Ahmed Sukkar, head of the village council in Fukin village, told “Quds Press” that settlers pumped wastewater on lands in the village, damaging an area of 50 dunums.
He pointed out that this is not the first time the settlers pump industrial waste or wastewater through pipes installed in the region, which led to damaging the lands and the crops.
Sukkar cautioned of the environmental and health dangers caused by such acts on the area’s residents and farmers.
