Israeli Policies in the Occupied Palestinian Territories

Water is the most important resource that ties people to land. Therefore, the Israeli occupation control over Palestinian water has been a strategic tactic to force Palestinians outside of their lands in area C to areas A and B, and use it as a tool of oppression on Palestinians in the rest of the West Bank.
