HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Thursday demolished three wells and part of a home west of Hebron, witnesses said.

Haitham Awwad, a resident of al-Bass near Idhna, told Ma'an that an Israeli force arrived with a bulldozer and demolished a well and three rooms of a home belonging to farmer Abdul Hafith Awwad.

The forces also destroyed two wells belonging to Abdul Rahman Faraj Allah and Ahmad Faraj Allah, he said.

Awwad said the wells were located near Israel's separation wall inside the southern West Bank, in an area with many natural springs. Israel confiscated water from the springs for use by Israeli citizens, he added.

South of Hebron, Israeli authorities on Wednesday ordered the demolition of solar panels and water pipes in a desert area near Hebron, residents said.

Nasr al-Nawaja told Ma'an the projects supplied water and electricity to his village al-Mafqara.

He said five kilometers of water pipes connected to a well provided the only source of water to shepherds and residents. Meanwhile, the solar panels were the sole source of power and provided sufficient electricity for 50 families to use lights and small fridges.

"By canceling the project, the Israeli occupation is confiscating people’s basic human rights," al-Nawaja added.

That's quite a serious charge, actually demolishing wells and solar panels! In this day and age, is this admissible?

To Outsider #1 'That's quite a serious charge, actually demolishing wells and solar panels! In this day and age, is this admissible?' You're forgetting that these events happened on Planet Israel. The moral laws are quite different there.
