BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities reportedly seized a Palestinian-owned vehicle and water hoses used for irrigation in al-Baqiaa south of Tubas in the northern Jordan Valley region of the occupied West Bank on Saturday evening, official Palestinian news agency Wafa reported. 

Wafa quoted local official ‏Aref Daraghmeh, who monitors settlement activities in the Jordan Valley, as saying that Israeli forces seized a vehicle belonging to a resident of the nearby town of Tammun, in addition to seizing 400-meter-long water hoses used by locals for irrigation.

A spokesperson from COGAT, the Israeli agency responsible for implementing Israeli policies in the occupied Palestinian territory, was not immediately available for comment.

The incident was followed by a raid into a nearby northern Jordan Valley village Sunday morning, when stop-work orders were issued against 16 Palestinian-owned structures.
