Water Crises

 

The Middle East is one of the world’s most water-stressed regions, given its semi-arid nature, population growth and shared transboundary water resources.  In addition, in Palestine in particular, water scarcity is hydro-politically induced.  Since its 1967 occupation of the oPt, Israel has completely controlled our water resources and deprived us of access to an equitable and reasonable share of transboundary shared water, in violation of international law. Instead, Israel has used our water resources for its illegal settlements and meeting the demands of its growing population (natural and immigrants) , forcing our communities to purchase water from the Israeli company at high commercial prices.
