Hebron village waiting for promised water repairs

April 22, 2011

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) – Residents of Deir Al-Asal area in Dura village in Hebron are still suffering from the shortage of water for two years and they received many promises to solve their case.

Resident Raed Al-Shawamreh said in an interview with Ma’an that they are marginalized and they don’t have water in their area. The water came to their region only once or twice in the two years.

He added: ”The officials of this region promised eight months ago to repair and fix the water canals and system but nothing was done.” He is afraid that summer will come and no water will be available.

An official at the water department in the region Walid Abu Sharar said that the old network was undergoing repairs. The new one will reach Deir Al-Asal in Dura and 14 other villages, he said.
