Human Rights activist Aref Daraghmeh told LRC reporter:

“The Israeli occupation installs a new water line at the same time with destroying Palestinian water networks in Kardala. At the time Palestinians are denied from their right of using their water resources, the occupation steals Palestinian water and lands while the world stands still.”

A suffering journey:

Kardala is 18 km away from Tubas governorate; the village is still unacknowledged by the Israeli occupation. It became an interest for the occupation due to the fact that it is located on lands classified C according to Oslo accords. According to the data of Kardala village council, there are 8 structures notified with stop-work orders, not mentioning the 13 facilities that were demolished in the area. 

People of Kardala come hail originally from Tubas city; more specifically from the following families ( Sawafta, Daraghmeh, Qabha)
