Water Source

Mr. Moneeb Adeen Adeeb Kittan is a resident of An Nazla Ash Sharqiya in the northern part of Tulkarem. This locality relies on one groundwater well in meeting the domestic and agricultural needs of its inhabitants. Not rehabilitated since 1959 the well suffered from a number of technical malfunctions especially the low efficiency of the pumps limiting the water extraction rates and increasing the price of water. In addition to the very low domestic consumption rates water for cultivating the fertile agricultural land also became very scarce. As a result out of the village’s 274 dunums, more than 200 have been left uncultivated. This is especially serious in a context where agricultural activities constitute the main source of income for this village.
