Israeli West Bank factories to be probed for pollution

Posted By on March 9, 2015

Ramallah: Two international environmental teams will soon arrive in the Palestinian territories to examine the effect on health and the environment of the Israel Jishori factories, known by Palestinians as factories of death, on the residents of the city of Tulkarem. The intention of the study is to arm the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) with the evidence to sue Israel via the United Nations Environment Programme (Unep) to force Israel to seal the factories because of the serious health hazards they cause for residents. The entire file of the Israeli Jishori factories is currently on the Unep table and the PNA is just waiting for the technical reports of the two professional environmental teams due to begin work soon, said Essam Al Qasim, who heads the Environment Quality Authority in the northern region of the West Bank and whose remit includes Tulkarem and Qalqilia.
