AL-KHALIL, Zionist settlers flooded grapevines in the Palestinian village of Beit Ummar, Al-Khalil city, on Sunday with sewage water damaging the crops over tens of dunums.
Local sources reported that the settlers in nearby Etzion settlement opened the gates of sewage ponds in their settlement at a late hour on Saturday, which flooded the grapevines north of Beit Ummar.
The sources noted that tens of Palestinian and foreign solidarity activists rushed to the area in an attempt to rescue the harvest, which, if ruined, would cause severe material losses to the farmers.
