Israel demolishes EU-funded irrigation pools in Jordan Valley

Dec. 25, 2014 2:51 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 27, 2014 7:45 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces demolished EU-funded irrigation pools in the northern Jordan Valley on Thursday, locals told Ma'an.

Israeli military vehicles arrived in the area of al-Jiftlik accompanied by bulldozers and demolished six irrigation pools used by Palestinian farmers.

The construction of the pools was funded by grants from European donor countries.

The pretext for the demolition was based on a "military order," locals said.

The Jordan Valley covers around 30 percent of the occupied West Bank. Over 90 percent of the area is designated as Area C and off-limits to Palestinian construction.
