Netanyahu in 2015, according to a bipartisan Senate investigative report released on Tuesday. In releasing the report, Senator Rob Portman criticized the State Department for lax oversight and for undermining a U.S. ally. http://www.politico.com/story/2016/07/state-department-grant-netanyahu-225414  Read more

ISRAEL INCREASES WATER SUPPLY TO WEST BANK.

Israel last Thursday dismissed Palestinian charges that it had cut the water supply to West Bank Palestinians, explaining that a broken water pipe had caused a temporary shortage. For the month of Ramadan Israel has increased the water flow to Palestinians at night, when the usage is particularly high after the fast. Separately, it also increased the flow of water in the Hebron and Bethlehem area by 5,000 cubic meters per hour, COGAT said.
