Israel cuts water supplies to Palestinians (West Bank) during Ramadan

Israel's national water company has cut crucial water supplies to large areas of the occupied West Bank, leaving tens of thousands of Palestinians without access to safe drinking water during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

In some areas people had not received water for more than 40 days.

"People are relying on purchasing water from water trucks or finding it from alternative sources such as springs and other filling points in their vicinity and families are having to live on two, three or ten litters per day, and in some areas they had started rationing water."

- told by Ayman Rabi, the executive director of the Palestinian Hydrology Group.

Due to this crisis tens of thousands of Palestinians are left without access to safe drinking water during the Islamic holy month.
