Report: "Thirsting for Justice - violations of the human right to water in Palestine"

In spring of this year, CESR, in collaboration with local Palestinian NGOs, conducted a project to document violations of Palestinians’ human right to water. From the construction of the wall of separation in the northern West Bank to the destruction of drinking water wells in Gaza, to Israel’s refusal to provide water services to unrecognized villages in the Negev, CESR found widespread and severe human rights violations.
