JENIN, June 7, 2012 (WAFA) – Israeli bulldozers Thursday destroyed six water wells east of the northern West Bank city of Jenin, according to local and security sources.

They said that Israeli bulldozers, accompanied by 10 Israeli military vehicles, destroyed two artesian water wells, which were used to irrigate dozens of dunums of agricultural land at a crossroad with the village of Beit Qad east of Jenin.

Meanwhile, Israeli bulldozers, protected by soldiers, destroyed four other water wells in Deir Abu Daif village east of Jenin.

Governor of Jenin, Talal Dweikat, condemned the destruction of the water wells and said that these measures are part of an Israeli policy aimed at getting Palestinians to leave their land for the benefit of settlement expansion.
