On the morning of March 3rd, Occupation forces destroyed a well in the village of Burqaâ, east of Hebron. The well belonged to Hamed Jaber and was located 200 meters from the road that cuts through Palestinian land, connecting the settlements of Kirya Araba and Kharsina.
Eyewitnesses testified that Occupation bulldozers arrived close to 11:00 in the morning, destroyed the Well and then departed in less than in an hour. Residents who live in the area, which suffers from an acute shortage of water, relied on this well for drinking and watering crops.
The residents appealed to rights and popular organizations to support the steadfastness of the people of Burqaâ who continually face organized assaults and land theft. These attacks come particularly from Kiryat Arba, which has annexed the land of Buraqâ inside the boundaries of the settlement.
