Israeli factories in Salfit major cause of high rate of cancer among children

SALFIT, (PIC)– The Israeli Barkan industrial area established on Palestinian land in Salfit is the major cause for soaring rate of cancer among children in the area compared to other Palestinian areas, health and local sources said on Wednesday.

They said that the factories pollute the environment and cause serious diseases as they throw their solid and water refuse in Palestinian land and poisonous gases in the air.

The sources charged the Israeli occupation authority with allowing those factories to move from 1948 occupied Palestine to the West Bank since Israeli rules refuse to allow such dangerous materials to emanate from factories in the 1948 occupied land.
