Israel Destroys Ancient Water Reservoir In Bethlehem Area
Officials from the Palestinian Authority criticized the destruction this week of an ancient water well and reservoir southeast of Bethlehem used by Palestinian Bedouin shepherds as their main sources of water.
Israel's destruction of water wells and other infrastructure used by the Bedouin tribes is a common practice. One Bedouin village alone has had their homes and barns destroyed 14 times in the last year by Israeli authorities. Israeli officials say the destruction is justified as the Bedouin Arab tribes are 'unrecognized', even though they have lived on the land for hundreds of years.
