Israeli activists rally in the Jordan Valley in the West Bank in a show of support for Palestinians, who have been denied water by the IDF:

Background: In recent weeks, with the warming of the weather, the Miltary's Government's Civil Administration is resorting to creative and wicked means in order to deny water to the Palestinians in the Jordan Valley and deny them water. Already for many years, Palestinians in the Jordan Valley are not allowed to connect their houses to flowing water – having to bring in water by tankers, at a far higher price than of piped water. Recently, however, a large number of these water tankers were confiscated by the Civil Administration with the excuse of a suspicion of their having been used to commit a crime – i.e. "the theft of water". In this way, hundreds of people were consigned to thirst, among them hundreds of babies, children, elderly and sick – in the hottest time of the year, at the hottest part of the country. Another way to harass the Palestinian residents is an "expulsion for a limited time" in order to make place for military exercises.
