West Bank water seized by Israel

Great infographic from Visualizing Palestine in honor of U.N.’s World Water Day (March 22).  The Israeli government, which controls the Ramallah acquifer located in Palestine’s West Bank, allocates only  70 litres a day for each Palestinian.  The majority of the water is reserved for Israelis – 300 litres a day per Israeli.  Note that the World Health Organization says 100 litres per day per person is the minimum for good health.  (Click on photo to enlarge and read everything – original is 2000 pixels wide.)
