Israeli authorities cut off Nablus water supply

13 towns Nablus cut off water

The Israeli occupation authorities at daybreak Thursday cut off water supplies to 13 Palestinian towns southeast of Nablus, in the northern West Bank.

According to Ghassan Dughlas, a Palestinian activist monitoring settlement activity in the northern West Bank, the occupation authorities have often cut off water supplies to the area without prior notifications.

However, illegal settlement outposts built on Palestinian lands in and near the area have been granted unrestricted access to Palestinian water resources.

Palestinian groundwater supplies in Nablus and Salfit have been permanently misappropriated by the Israeli authorities and transferred to nearby settlement outposts.
