Israeli Army Destroys Water Line in Jordan Valley

JORDAN VALLEY, January 29, 2015 (WAFA) – Israeli army Thursday destroyed a water line connecting two villages in the northern Jordan Valley, according to local sources.

Aref Daraghmeh, head of the municipal council of Al-Maleh, told WAFA an Israeli army force accompanied by heavy machinery broke into the area and destroyed a water line connecting between the villages of Atoof and Yerza.

The water line, 1000 meters long, is currently under construction.

The Jordan Valley, which makes up about one-third of the total area of the occupied West Bank, is home to dozens of illegal Israeli settlements and agricultural outposts.

The Valley is part of the West Bank occupied since 1967, which the international community does not recognize as an Israeli territory.
