The Palestinian Water Authority (PWA) stated, on Thursday, that Israeli authorities drastically cut the amount of water allocated to the West Bank districts of Jenin, Nablus, Ramallah and Hebron, in recent days, Palestinian WAFA News Agency reported.

The sudden drop interrupted the water supply to the public, and caused irregular water pressure, adding that the PWA had difficulty managing and distributing the decreased amount of water in a fair and efficient manner.

Head of the PWA, Mazen Ghneim, noted that the Israeli occupation is missing no opportunity to exacerbate the daily suffering of the Palestinian people in the occupied West Bank, and by all means.

“We are facing this crisis as we enter the summer season, a time of the year when people are usually in need of more and not less quantities of water. Demand for water, according to indicators, is expected to increase by about 30 percent,” Ghneim said.

The head of the PWA appealed to the international community to insist that the Israeli occupation to cease its arbitrary policy of using water as a tool to further oppress the Palestinian people.
