Israeli authorities plan to destroy wells serving Silwad farmers

Feb. 4, 2015 9:27 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 6, 2015 8:09 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Wednesday delivered demolition orders for several water wells in the Palestinian village of Silwad north of Ramallah.

Deputy Head of the Silwad Cooperative Association council Abd al-Rahman Hammad told Ma'an that Israeli forces put the demolition notices on top of agricultural wells belonging to Nasser Issa, Yasser Salim, Bassel al-Tawil, and Muhammad Saleh.

Hammad added that the farmers were also summoned to attend a court session at the local Israeli military court of Beit El on Feb. 12.

Israeli authorities regularly demolish agricultural structures as well as homes on the pretext that they lack permits.

At the same time, Israeli authorities generally refuse to license Palestinian construction in the vast majority of the West Bank under their direct control, known as "Area C."
