About Ta'nak:

The village of Ta'nak is located alongside with Jezreel Valley “Sahel Marj Bin 'Amir" where it floats on a huge water stock. Any digging activity of more than 9m in depth makes water erupt strongly. Unfortunately, residents have to buy water from the Israeli company of Mekorot. Therefore, lands planted with vegetables shrank because of water scarcity and Israel’s control of water resources. Not only that, farmers were left but to work behind the green line (boarders separating Israel and the West Bank) after they stopped using their lands due to the occupation practices. The total population of the village now is 1200 people".
