Jewish settlers drench Palestinian land with wastewater

NABLUS, (PIC)-- Jewish settlers drenched Palestinian cultivated land to the west of Nablus with wastewater and ruined crops causing huge material damage to the farmers.

Nader Al-Shaer, the mayor of Sabastiya village, told the PIC on Wednesday that Jewish settlers in Shavi Shimron settlement used to collect their wastewater in two pools, yet they recently opened those pools and flooded Palestinian fields.

He said that the practice, which has been ongoing for the past month, led to vast destruction in the cultivated lands leading to big financial losses other than the health and environmental hazards and diseases expected to spread as a result of such practices.

Shaer asked concerned authorities to check the settlers’ violations and ceaseless attacks, which, he said, reflected their arrogance.
