Water in Farsiya

Tubas Governorate is getting raped. First the demolitions in the Maleh, now confiscated water in Khirbet Farsiya.

  IOF Confiscates Water Tank, Causes Water Crisis in Village.

Apparently this has been happening to Farsiya for years now: Brighton Jordan Valley Solidarity Report

I made a proposal to bring ten English teachers to Palestine and place them in communities around the Tubas governorate, to help protect the vulnerable areas. The mayor of Tubas told me there used to be a Palestinian-American school in the city, and they were interested in re-opening it. This may be a good match for my program idea, if I can get it together by this winter. Question is, will there be communities left to protect?
