Meretz Slams Judea-Samaria Towns as "Pollutants"


Member of Knesset Nitzan Horowitz (Meretz) slammed his fellow MKs from the Jewish Home party who walked out in the middle of the controversial speech by the President of the European Parliament Martin Schulz. MK Horowitz claimed while Jewish communities are hooked up to Israel's Water Authority, towns under Palestinian Authority jurisdiction "have places that receive water only once every two weeks."

He singled out MK Orit Struk (Jewish Home) in particular, shouting from the Knesset plenum that communities such as the one she lives in "pollute the land, pollute the groundwater, and pollute the Knesset." MK Struk is a resident of Hevron.
