Israel destroys water supply line in Masafer Yatta, South Hebron Hills, 28 Oct. 2020
Today, Wednesday, 28 October 2020, at around 10:30 A.M., Civil Administration personnel came with a military jeep and a digger to the Masafer Yatta region of the South Hebron Hills. The forces dug up and destroyed a 1.5 kilometer stretch of piping, thereby cutting off the water supply to the communities of Maghayir al-‘Abid and Khirbet al-Majaz. The forces later continued to the area of Khirbet al-Fakhit, where they unearthed a water pipe but left without destroying it. This is but one aspect of an Israeli policy aimed at driving Palestinian residents out of their homes.
