International Activists Accompany Palestinians Under Fire to Repair Water Wells in Gaza

July 11, 2002

Early this morning, international activists accompanied Palestinian repair workers to the two main wells that provide water to municipalities in the Gaza strip. The wells are only 6 meters from the fence that encloses the Israeli settlement of Net Sarim. Palestinian workers have been shot at repeatedly by settlers and the Israeli military when they have tried to repair the wells.
