Settlers flood sewage into agricultural land near Hebron

HEBRON, Israeli settlers on Sunday flooded sewage into an orchard planted with grapes near the town of Beit Ummar, to the north of Hebron in the occupied West Bank, according to local sources.

Yousef Abu Maria, an anti-settlement activist, told WAFA that extremist Israeli settlers from Gush Etzion settlement, nearby, flooded sewage into a 40-dunum orchard planted with grapes in order to damage the crops, which belong to Palestinian farmers.

He said Palestinian farmers in the area have incurred significant losses as a result of similar flooding of sewage by Israeli settlers in recent years.
