1. An new old story ‘resurfacing’ in the mass media. My emphasis in bold.
”A deepening drought in the Middle East is aggravating a dispute over water resources after the World Bank found that Israel is taking four times as much water as the Palestinians from a vital shared aquifer.”
”Increasingly, West Bank Palestinians must rely on water bought from the Israeli national water company, Mekorot.
”In some areas of the West Bank, Palestinians are surviving on as little as 10 to 15 litres a person each day, which is at or below humanitarian disaster response levels recommended to avoid epidemics. In Gaza, where Palestinians rely on an aquifer that has become increasingly saline and polluted, the situation is worse. Only 5%-10% of the available water is clean enough to drink.”
2. Here are some great facts on the extent of the issue. Absolutely shocking stuff; I believe now, more than ever, that the usurping entity’s days are numbered.
”It (the mountain acquifier) is typically divided into three sub-aquifers. The primary one, due to the high quality of its water, is the Western Aquifer. Most of its recharge area lies in the West Bank, while the entire storage area lies in Israel. 95% of its water is used by Israel.The second one, the Northern Aquifer, has both its recharge and storage areas essentially located within the West Bank. However, Israel extracts about 70% of the water. Finally, the Eastern Aquifer, which is entirely within the West Bank, has 37% of its water consumed by Israel – mostly by settlers.”
