Poor waste disposal puts West Bank at risk

Each day lorries in Palestinian territory dump refuse into landfill where medical waste poses a health threat.

    In the occupied Palestinian territory of West Bank, the disposal of medical waste is a major problem. It should be incinerated, but instead it is often taken to the nearest landfill.

    Many people are at risk of contracting diseases from the used products.
