After World Bank issues report, commissioned by the Palestinian
Authority on the condition of water accessibility in the West Bank, Israel
claims the reports authors are biased. To understand the conditions on
the ground, how they’ve been addressed, and whether the so-called
peace process succeeded in addressing them, Lia Tarachansky speaks
to LifeSource Project, a non-profit organization focusing solely on the
issue of water. Susan Koppelman and Taysir Arabasi tell The Real News’
Lia Tarachansky the Mountain Aquifer, the biggest supply of fresh
underground water is pumped by Israel even though it lies almost entirely
in the West Bank. They also speak about restrictions on Palestinians to
dig water wells, and their dependence on the Israeli national water
corporation, Mekorot.
