OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– IOF bulldozers demolished on Wednesday night 11 water tanks and troughs used by Palestinian shepherds in the southern West Bank, in an Israeli attempt to force Palestinians to leave the area.

According to the occupation’s civil administration which is behind the demolition, the demolished tanks and troughs were built without planning permissions, despite the fact that some of these tanks to the south of mount al-Khalil were actually built long before the establishment of the Zionist entity itself.

The Haaretz newspaper pointed out that the occupation authorities aim by such a measure to force Palestinian Bedouins to abandon the area which is considered a good area for military training and is used by the IOF for such a purpose.

The paper said that by drying the water, the [occupation’s] civil administration hopes that the Bedouins who use the water for their livestock will abandon the area.

The occupation’s civil administration ordered the demolition of all water tanks and troughs five years ago according to the paper, but only started to implement the decision on Wednesday.
