Israeli forces on Tuesday denied Palestinian shepherds access to water wells in the village of Birin, south of Hebron (Al-Khalil), the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

Fouad al-Amour, the coordinator of the Protection and Steadfastness Committees in Masafer Yatta, told WAFA that Israeli forces barged their way into a historical water well in the village and threatened to punish Palestinian shepherds if they approach or water their flocks from it, purportedly for being classified as archaeological.

Al-Amour added that the Israeli soldiers stormed the al-Jaza area, took photos of another well, and ordered Palestinians not to use it citing the same pretext.

There are over 600,000 Israeli settlers living in illegal Jewish settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Israel’s nation-state law that passed in July 2018 stated that building and strengthening the settlements is a “national interest.”

  1. The way to deal with neo-Nazi Israel and the BDS is to treat Israel with disdain and shun all those that support its crimes. Eventually this will force Israel to start obeying the law and return to its legally defined 1948 borders and stop killing Palestinians men women and children and thereby start acting less like a rogue criminal terrorist state that routinely commits war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide and Apartheid in order to steal land and resources belonging to other countries.
