Sewage from surrounding settlements has turned Wadi Qana village's water sources into streams of urine and feces. the entire village was forced to evacuate because of the noxious smells, polluted plants, and violent settlers. meanwhile, the surrounding settlements expand and further pollute the valley.
On March 30, 2005, Women for Life, a local women's empowerment and resistance group, held a demonstration in Wadi Qana
in protest of the destruction of Palestinian land.
