Israeli occupation forces yesterday destroyed the main water network in the village of Susiya, south of Hebron/Al-Khalil in the occupied West Bank.

The coordinator of the Protection and Resilience Committee in Masafer Yatta, Fuad al-Amour, reported that occupation forces destroyed the main water network in the village of Susiya in Masafer Yatta without justification, despite the water line being legal.

He explained that the occupation forces and Jewish settlers have been continuing their violations against the people of Masafer Yatta and their properties, with the aim of forcing them to leave the area to make way at got illegal Jewish settlements.

Settlers also distributed settlement plans in several communities in Masafer Yatta, aiming to seize about 400 dunams (98 acres) of land belonging to the Palestinian village.
