Gaza24Aug4JENIN (PNIC):-The municipal council of Zabada town, south of Jenin in the occupied West Bank, has warned that the water crisis in the town will aggravate in view of Israel’s refusal to supply it with its water needs.

This came during a meeting held recently between chief of the Zabada municipality Wajeeh Zaid and deputy mayor of Jenin Kamal Abul-Rab.

Zaid stated that his municipality had submitted a request to the Israeli competent authorities to allow the town to get water from a nearby pipe owned by Mekorot water company, but the Israeli side did not respond.

The municipal official urged the Palestinian government to implement water projects in the town to solve the crisis.

Zabada town is located near the separation wall, and a vast tract of its land has been annexed by Israel for settlement construction activities.
