Video: Israeli sewage-dumping affects Palestinian villages

July 17, 2010

Israeli settlements have been dumping untreated waste directly into a
sewage canal that runs through the occupied West Bank, affecting
Palestinian villages along its banks.

The hazard posed is compounded by the dumping of toxic chemical waste
on agricultural land, with villagers reporting a rash of skin diseases
and respiratory problems.

The Israeli government has banned plans by the Palestinian Authority to
build pipes and pumps to treat and divert wastewater away from the
affected villages.
