Israeli Settlers Destroy Water Pipes, Seal Water Spring Near Nablus

S.K | DOP -

Israeli settlers destroyed Sunday, September 25, 2022 water pipes in the village of as-Sawiya, to the south of  occupied West Bank city of Nablus and sealed a water spring that supplies the village with water.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Bank, said that Israeli settlers from the illegal Israeli settlement of Eli destroyed water pipes and filled in a water spring used to feed the village with water, which caused water crisis in the area.

Israeli settlers’ vandalism in the occupied West Bank is routine and is done with full protection by the Israeli authorities, said the Israeli human rights group B’Tselem.

“Settler violence and vandalism take place with full backing by the Israeli authorities. Sometimes soldiers take part in the assault; at other times, they stand idly by. The police make no substantial effort to investigate the incidents, nor takes measures to prevent them or stop them in real-time,” Daghlas stated.
