Youths protest water shortages in Bethlehem camp

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Palestinian youths burned tires and briefly stopped traffic on a main Bethlehem road Tuesday, as they protested against water shortages in the occupied West Bank.

Several dozen residents of Bethlehem's al-Azza refugee camp joined the demonstration in which participants set fire to tires and blocked traffic with a dumpster they dragged into the center of Manger Street.

A Ma'an reporter observed firefighters and police officers arriving at the scene. He said they did not interfere with the demonstration, which ended without injury or damage.

Rights groups like Amnesty International say Israel appropriates Palestinian natural resources and provides an inordinately large water supply to its settler population.
