Israelis 'get 80% of West Bank water'

Israelis 'get 80% of West Bank water'
Rory McCarthy expands on a World Bank report that Israel is not only stealing Palestinian water reserves, but then reselling it for profit: "Israelis use 240 cubic metres of water a person each year, against 75 cubic metres for West Bank Palestinians and 125 for Gazans, the bank said. Increasingly, West Bank Palestinians must rely on water bought from the Israeli national water company, Mekorot."
