Palestinians setting up roots in Salfit sounded distress signals on Thursday after the Israeli occupation authorities cut water supplies pouring into the city.
According to local sources, water supplies to Salfit have been curtailed by up to 60%, forcing the local municipality to rein in the distribution and consumption of drinking water.
Researcher Khaled Maali said the IOA has been transferring water supplies stolen from the Palestinians to some 25 illegal settlement outposts built on Palestinian lands in Salfit.
In Maali’s terms, such moves make part of Israeli attempts to tighten the noose around Palestinians’ neck in Salfit so as to force them out of the area in favor of illegal settlement expansion.
