SALFIT, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) allowed the construction of new factories in the so-called Burkan industrial area built on Palestinian land west of Salfit city.

Palestinian health sources said that the factories were draining the environment, noting that they were polluting underground water, the soil, and air. Cancer spread among the population in nearby villages and new types of mosquitos were spreading diseases not known before in the area, they added.

The sources said that the factories and the Israeli settlement of Ariel were pouring their refuse into the Palestinian land.

Palestinian workers in some of those factories said that their owners do not care about environment protection or the health of workers.
