Local official: Israel destroys 5 water wells in Jenin

JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces destroyed five water wells in a Jenin village on Wednesday, claiming the structures were unlicensed, a local official said.

Muhammad Fahmi Maree, head of a local agricultural association, told Ma'an that an Israeli bulldozer, accompanied by military vehicles, destroyed the wells in Kafr Dan village.

Israeli authorities did not give the villagers any prior notification about the demolition, Maree said, adding that Israeli forces also destroyed a water pump.

Jenin governor, Talal Dweikat, told a Ma'an reporter that by destroying water wells Israeli authorities are targeting the Palestinian economy.

He called on human rights groups to help end Israeli aggression against Palestinian farmers.
