Al-Jazeera Video: Israel dumps waste on Palestinians
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
