JENIN, December 30, 2013 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers from the Illegal Israeli settlement of Meirav Monday pumped waste water coming out of the settlement into the nearby Palestinian village of Jalboun, east of Jenin, according to local sources.

Director General of Marj Ibn Amer municipality, Helal Nassar, told WAFA that the municipality filed an official complaint against the Israeli side and Meirav’s settlers who deliberately pumped waste water into the village.

Locals expressed concern that their houses would be flooded by wastewater which causes serious health and environmental problems and destroys agricultural crops.

The municipal council called upon human rights organizations to put an end to these practices.
