Israeli military bulldozers demolished five water cisterns and three farming huts owned by farmers from Ithna village, southern West Bank, on Thursday.
The soldiers also confiscated water pumps and electricity generators used by the famers, witnesses told local media.

The army says the structures where built in close proximity to the Israeli wall being built on the villagers’ lands.

The farmers said that they went to the Israeli court and were waiting for a judge’s decision on the matter. They added that the army gave them no warning before the demolition today.

The Mayor of Ithna , Jammal Al Tmeizi, said that the military wants to take over the land because of its rich agricultural properties.

Al Tmeizi added that the lands in question are the only source of income for its owners.
