Amnesty International has launched a scathing attack on Israel, accusing it of rationing Palestinians to a "trickle of water".
"Israel allows the Palestinians access to only a fraction of the shared water resources, which lie mostly in the occupied West Bank", says the report's author, Donatella Rovera, "while the unlawful Israeli settlements receive virtually unlimited supplies".
Teacher and father-of-seven Bassam Qdah has built a concrete water tank to collect rain water in his home in the village of Shukba.
The Israeli army has told him it will be demolished because it was built without a permit.
"We have seven young children," he told Amnesty researchers, "and even if we use it sparingly, we still need quite a bit of water.
"Why would they want to demolish this small cistern? It does not bother anyone and is on my land."

It just baffles my mind that Israel would do something so horrible to innocent people.
It's just so irrationally confusing.
It just doesn't make sense to me.
