B’Tselem: “Israel Exploits Water Resources From The Palestinians”
The Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories (B’Tselem), reported that Israel is heavily exploiting water resources in the Jordan Valley despite the fact that most of the water resources belong jointly to the Palestinians and Israel.
Yet, Israel took over most of the wells drawing 32 million m3 from the area every year and is allocating most of this water to 37 Israeli settlements built by Israel in the area. The settlements are mainly agricultural with less than 10.000 settlers living in them. They are granted 45 million m3 every year.
The International Middle East Media Center is running an URGENT online fundraising campaign.
