IOA serves notices for demolition of 8 water wells in Al-Khalil hamlet
IOA serves notices for demolition of 8 water wells in Al-Khalil hamlet

AL-KHALIL, (PIC)-- The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) served notices in Al-Fakhit hamlet to the east of Yatta town, south of Al-Khalil city, for the destruction of eight water wells.

Ratib Al-Jabour, the coordinator of the popular committee against the wall and settlement in Yatta, said on Wednesday that Israeli occupation forces delivered the notifications to members of the three families in the hamlet.

He said that the notifications include the demolition of the wells and barbed wire provided by UNDP for the establishment of a natural sanctuary over an area of 700 dunums owned by those three families.

Jabour lashed out at the IOA for displacing citizens and destroying their property for the sake of expanding Jewish settlements.

He said that Al-Fakhit is one of eight hamlets threatened with destruction in the area for the sake of retaining a reserve land for future establishment of settlements and expansion of existing ones.
