“The right to water remains an ancient issue frozen in time, and has become a reality of life for the residents in the village of Al-Aqabah, in the West Bank. Israel's water policy in the West Bank has severely affected the ability of villagers to derive natural sources of water. Without a connection to the area’s water system, villagers are forced to buy ($$$) and transport water from neighboring villages. Their water consumption is below the minimum amount recommended by the World Health Organization, to the extent that it is a health hazard. Israeli NGO goes to court demanding village be connected to water supply to stop severe harm to the residents' rights to health, livelihood and dignity.” Outcome TBD.
