International Middle East Media Center: Israeli authorities, Sunday, completely cut off the water supply of 14 houses in the old city of Jerusalem, under the pretext of accumulated debts, bringing the number of houses without water to 44 homes, according to an official.

Ashraf al-zorba, responsible on following up on water issues in the old city of Jerusalem, told WAFA that a staff of the Israeli Electric Company began, last week, the process of cutting off the water supply of a number of houses in Jerusalem; it cut off the water supply to 30 houses at once in two locations in the old city.

 

He stressed the difficult situation of residents living without water for several days now; residents now depend on neighbors to provide them with some of their water needs.

 

He said that the accumulated debts amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars and that the debt accumulation, in addition to millions of tax debts on residents, are all methods which Israel uses to displace Palestinians and force them to leave their land as an attempt to take it over.
