Netzer Trees Watered by Hand after Arab Sabotage


Dozens of activists, organized by Women in Green for Israel's Tomorrow, went to the Judean community of Netzer, Friday morning, stocked with hundreds of bottles of water - including recycled water and recycled containers - to irrigate hundreds of trees they had helped to plant, after Arabs damaged irrigation pipes. It was feared that the trees would dry out due to higher-than-average temperatures.

Women in Green leader Nadia Matar reported that the activity was accompanied by army and police forces for fear that the Arabs might sabotage the manual irrigation efforts.
