Palestinians in the West Bank continue to be desperate for adequate water

Israel cuts water every summer but this year’s cutback was unprecedented. Yet nearby Israeli settlements have swimming pools and beautiful gardens.

Ramallah, occupied West Bank - Enas Taha, a resident of the Palestinian village of Kafr al-Deek in the occupied West Bank, has become desperate.
"Since the [water] crisis started in June, the municipality has been able to supply water for only one hour twice a week," Taha told Al Jazeera. "I am checking the weather forecast every day; they announced rain three weeks ago, but it has not come yet. The only thing I can do is to pray to God."
