The affected citizen Marzouq An-Na’asan told LRC:

“At that day we were staying at Al-Mughayyir away from our tents , we had slept at the village to attend a wedding for our relatives , and when we were back we were shocked of the damage caused to our tents.”

Colonists also cut plastic water lines that connect the reservoir, to the tents and the plants around it , the water pipes are 45 m, in addition to confiscating feeders and destroying tents with sharp tools.”

Na’asan asserted, we suffer everyday from Israelis’ violations , the occupation won’t stop attempts to kick us from the area , despite that we have legal papers to prove that we own the land.

The affected farmer went under Israeli arbitrary measurements in June 7th 2022, and they did not receive any previous notices , noting that he supports a family of 6 members among them 2 females.
