Description : In a new report, the International Committee of the Red Cross identifies the Middle East as a region on the edge, with water resources and delivery systems near breaking point. This is in part the consequence of the ongoing conflict in Syria, Israel and the Occupied Territories, as well as nearly three decades of war and sanctions in Iraq.“The Middle East is bleeding water,” states ICRC’s head of operations for North Africa and the Middle East, Robert Mardini. ICRC teams are working round the clock with water authorities, Red Cross and Red Crescent volunteers to quickly repair pipelines, pumping stations and treatment facilities so that homes, hospitals, schools, centres with displaced people receive regular drinking water. There are also long-term rehabilitation projects.
