Israelis Sabotage Water Supply of Bedouins

Israel police arrested four Israelis on suspicion they had sabotaged the water supply to a cluster of Bedouin settlement in Khan al-Ahmar, east of Jerusalem.

The four were arrested in Sunday night close to the place where the sabotage had taken place, after the Bedouins called the police.

Id Abu Hamis, a resident of the area, told Haaretz that this hasn’t been the first incident of sabotage the water supply to the area suffered in recent times. During May, saboteurs sabotaged the pipeline five times, forcing them to hire guards.
