We have not made representations on this specific issue to the Israeli authorities but are aware of the dire situation in this Palestinian village in the northern Jordan Valley area of the West Bank. We regularly raise the issue of water in the Occupied Palestinian Territories with the Israeli authorities, stressing the urgent need for Israel to improve this unacceptable situation and ensure fair distribution of water in the West Bank and Gaza.
