Israel gives illegal settlers 70 times more water than Palestinians in the West Bank according to the head of the Palestinian Water Authority and Ma’an News.
On Sunday in Ramallah, Shaddad Attili said at a press conference that Palestinians received 105 million cubic metres of water. That is less than the amount required by the 1993 Oslo Accords and one quarter of the 400 million cubic meters needed to meet international per capita standards.
