In response to a French parliament report accusing Israel of water ‘apartheid’ in Judea and Samaria, the Israeli Government Press Office offered Hebrew University Professor Haim Gvirtzman’s recent report on “The Israeli-Palestinian Water Conflict” as proof that Israel has met all of its water obligations to the Palestinians.

“The most recent full and detailed data released by the Water Authority contradict the harsh claims being directed against Israel,” the Government Press Office said in a statement released Tuesday. “The major gap that existed in 1967 has been reduced over the past 40 years and is now negligible,” it continued. “Palestinian per capita water consumption in the domestic sector is significantly higher than the minimum defined by the World Health Organization.”
