Israel controls 85 percent of Palestinian water sources

Cairo, Oct 16 (Petra) -- Israel has controlled 85 percent of Palestinian water resources and underground water in the occupied West Bank is "extremely threatened by the water theft", according to a report by the Arab League Secretariat.
It called on the international community to shoulder its responsibility towards Israel's violations and enable the Palestinian people to have full access to the available water resources. According to Palestinian and international reports, Israel gets about 65 percent of its annual water consumption of 2,700 cubic meters from outside sources.
