NAZARETH, (PIC)– Hebrew media sources revealed that the diplomatic relations between Poland and Israel are witnessing tension because of the settlement policies pursued by the Israeli authorities in the occupied Palestinian territories.
Haaretz newspaper reported in its Wednesday edition, that the Polish Deputy Foreign Minister has refused to meet the Israeli ambassador in Warsaw, in protest at the destruction of Palestinian cisterns in the West Bank, which had been recently repaired by a Polish volunteer organization, by Israel’s Civil Administration.
The paper described the relationships between Poland and Israel as “extremely tense” because of the Israeli policies of displacing and expelling the Palestinian population from their land in order to seize it.
A Polish organization had funded the restoration works on a number of water wells in the occupied West Bank, but the occupation authorities have demolished them, pushing the Polish Foreign Ministry to submit an official protest to the Israeli government, through its ambassador in Warsaw.
Haaretz confirmed that the Polish foreign ministry will demand the European Union to discuss the issue of the Israeli demolition policy for water wells in the Palestinian territories, during its next meeting.
