Israeli authorities encircle Qalqiliya land with fence

QALQILIYA (Ma’an) – Israeli authorities have started to install a fence around the southern side of Azzun Atma in Qalqiliya in the northern West Bank.

A two-meter high spiral fence was installed on around 1,500 meters of land running from the settlement of Oranit to the crossroads of Kafr Qasim and route 505, according to Abdul-Karim Ayyoub, the secretary of the local council.

"With this fence, Israel is isolating the area known as Beer al-Shilla, the artisan well, and about 800-1000 dunams (over 8,000 meters squared) of different groves. Farmers will not be able to access their fields even after they pass the gate on the northern side of the road," he added.

Hani Amer, who is in charge of the artisan well in al-Shilla said that neither the well nor the groves could be accessed anymore, as the Israelis have not left openings or gates leading to the well or to the dirt roads.
