Wadi Al-Maleh, 25 Shawwal 1436/10 August 2015 (MINA) – Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) blocked water tanks from reaching Bedouin families in Wadi Al-Maleh in the northern Jordan Valley in absolute disregard to the severe hot weather.

Local sources revealed that the IOF soldiers stopped Palestinians’ tractors towing water tanks, blocked their traffic, and prohibited them to access the area, The Palestinian Information Center quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting, Monday (10/8).

The sources pointed out that the IOF deliberately pressures Bedouins in the region with the aim of forcing them to leave their homes in Wadi Al-Maleh.

The Israeli forces prevent Bedouins from using water springs in the area and consider water transfer via tanks an offense for which drivers get penalized by confiscation and fines.

Besides, the confiscated water tanks are usually transferred to Israeli military camps.(T/P008/RO6)
