Israeli Settlers Flood Grape Vines with Wastewater in Hebron

M.Y | DOP -

Israeli colonial settlers on Tuesday, August 16, flooded the Palestinian grape vines with wastewater in Beit Ummar in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron.

Local sources reported that Israeli settlers, protected by Israeli occupation forces, flooded the Palestinian-owned grape vines with wastewater, causing considerable losses to several Palestinian farmers who rally on grapes as their main source of income.

The sources added that the lands are owned by the Palestinian Sabarna family which depends on grapes as the main source of livelihood.

The settlers’ flooding of the lands coincides with the start of the grape harvest season in Hebron, which provides a deeper understanding of the Israeli intention to destroy the Palestinian economy.

As part of Israel’s ecological apartheid in occupied Palestine, Israeli settlers regularly break into the Palestinian lands, uprooting countless trees.
