Mekorot, the Israeli water company has stopped pumping irrigation water to Ayn al-Beida village in the northern Jordan valley yesterday morning. The village still remains without irrigation water today.
On the same day the occupation forces attacked the village and raided homes in a search that began under the pretext of theft of surrounding settlers' property. This property theft pretext has been used many times by the occupation forces even though it has been proven in the past that thefts occur between the settlers themselves.
Nabil Alfoqha, the coordinator of the popular committee, said that some days ago settlers came from the Msikot settlement and tried to confiscate land owned by the villager Majed Younis Foqaha, claiming ownership of his land. The villagers succeeded to expel the settlers after strong arguing from both sides.
