On Wednesday evening, Israeli soldiers destroyed a water line, providing water to at least 1200 Palestinians north of Jericho in the northeastern part of the occupied West Bank.

Media sources stated that the soldiers closed the only water pipeline, welded it shut, and used bulldozers to place large rocks on it after welding it shut.

They added that the pipeline provided the needed water supplies to more than 1200 Palestinians in the Al-Auja Spring community.

Hasan Mleihat, the supervisor of the Al-Baidar Organization for Defending the Rights of the Bedouins, said the community is one of the largest Bedouin villages in the West Bank and is subject to constant assaults and violations by the Israeli occupation soldiers and the illegal paramilitary colonizers.
