West Bank farmers facing water shortage

Life is becoming harder for farming communities as Israeli settlements reduce access to water.

    Life for the farming communities in the occupied West Bank's Jordan Valley is becoming harder.

    Israeli settlements are steadily reducing Palestinians' access to water. The personal allocation for every Israeli in the area is 487 litres a day. In many neighbouring Palestinian communities, it is less than 100 litres a day.

    Al Jazeera's Simon McGregor-Wood reports from the Jordan Valley.
