Settlers: 60,000 of our people suffering from water shortages

Some 60,000 settlers are suffering from water shortages in the West Bank, the Samaria Regional Council said on Monday, as part of its campaign to force the government to take the matter seriously.

“For the last five years we have been turning to the Water Authority, warning that the infrastructure cannot handle the population growth in Samaria,” Regional Council head Yossi Dagan said.

He wrote about attempts to ward off the water crisis in a letter that he penned to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu along with Ariel Mayor Eli Shaviro.
