Palestinian water theft is tapping Israel dry


Palestinian water theft is tapping Israel dry

Palestinian theft of water in Judea and Samaria has reached nightmare proportions. Every year, 10 million cubic meters of water are stolen from the mountain aquifer under Israeli control, while drilling permits for Palestinians allow for much less. As if that wasn’t enough, just a fraction of the sewage generated by the Palestinians is properly treated, causing considerable damage to the environment.
