Israeli army orders work on European-funded solar panel stopped

JORDAN VALLEY ,The Israeli army represented by the so-called Civil Administration, ordered on Wednesday night work to be stopped on a European-funded solar panel in the Jordan Valley village of Bardalla, according to an official.

Mutaz Bisharat, from the Toubas Governorate, said the army ordered to stop work on a solar panel project intended to supply electricity to an artesian well near the village and funded by the Italian GVC non-profit organization, which is active in international development aid projects in areas of conflict.

Israel does not allow the Palestinians to build anything in the Jordan Valley, which is part of Area C that makes more than 60 percent of the area of the occupied West Bank and which is under full Israeli control, as a prelude for its eventual takeover.
