Erdan: Israel Still Subsidizing Gaza Water


At a conference on environmental issues in Judea and Samaria Monday, Environment Minister Gilad Erdan said that Israel was selling water to the Palestinian Authority at a subsidized price. “We continue to supply water to Gaza, even though Israel has had nothing to do with Gaza for seven years,” Erdan said. “We are always offering the Palestinians assistance in technological and scientific issues, but of course we never credit for this,” he said.

Erdan praised the organizers of the conference, Yarok Achshav (Green Now) as the only environmental organization that was concerned about issues in the entire land of Israel, including Judea and Samaria.
