Hebron (QNN)- Israeli extremist settlers on Thursday threw a poisonous substance in a water well in the east of Yatta, south of Hebron, in an attempt to kill local residents and their animals, who depend on the well for their livelihood.
The Palestinian Information Center quoted local official Rateb al-Jabour saying that settlers from the illegal settlement of Maon in eastern Yatta threw a blue toxic substance in a water well used by local shepherds in al-Hamra area in eastern Yatta.
He said that local shepherds in eastern Yatta are exposed to almost daily assaults by Jewish settlers in order to force them to leave their native areas.
Violent actions of settlers against Palestinians are not exceptions to a rule. Rather, they form part of a broader strategy in which “Israel” colludes, as it stands to benefit from the result. This unchecked violence is designed to gradually drive Palestinians from more and more locations in the West Bank, making it easier for “Israel” to take over land and resources.
