The inspection unit of the Civil Administration seized a truck containing a drilling hammer and sixty drilling rods. The equipment was intercepted at the Jaba checkpoint southeast of Ramallah, and apparently the goal was to bring it into Hevron for illegal water drilling.

In another enforcement operation last night, a truck and a shovel were found that were used to set up an illegal water line outside the village of Nahalin, near Beitar Illit.

Enforcement activities were carried out as part of the Civil Administration's efforts to eliminate thefts and increase the water supply in Judea and Samaria.

This enforcement is part of a policy led by the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories, Major General Yoav Mordechai, under which enforcement is carried out under the supervision of the Civil Administration's supervision unit.
