Israel/Occupied Palestinian Territories: Thirsting for justice: Palestinian access to water restricted (Demand Dignity campaign digest)

By Amnesty International, , Index number: MDE 15/028/2009

Palestinians in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT) do not have access to adequate, safe water supplies. This long standing problem has significantly hindered social and economic development in the OPT and denied many communities their rights to an adequate standard of living and to food, health and work. Palestinian per capita water consumption remains below acceptable international standards for the protection of public health. In this document Amnesty International calls on the Israeli authorities to urgently address the desperate need for water security in the OPT.
