The Jezreel Valley and the Huleh Valley Projects
This chapter examines the malaria control swamp drainage projects in the Jezreel Valley and the Huleh Valley in Palestine, and their connection to the Zionist nationalist movement. It suggests that the cases of the Jezreel Valley and the Huleh Valley show that sanitary/health concerns and political/settlement interests merged in the site of the swamp. In addition to controlling malaria, Zionist land agencies used drainage interventions to create more living and agricultural area for Jewish settlers.
