Yesterday we visited the village of Khirbet al Kharaba which we also had visited with the previous team. It is inhabited by two permanent families. It is in Area C and it has had a home demolition recently. They have no electricity, shelter or water. We are hopeful that a tent will come very soon before any more rainfall. We contacted UNOCHA again about the situation here. A village nearby has some solar panels and our driver could run a line to Khirbet al Kharaba but the neighbours said ‘no’ because there was not enough power and the invertor keeps burning out. Also the people must buy water which is very expensive. At one time, they had wells but the Israeli administration has destroyed them or taken them over. They control the water supply in Area C and the Palestinians have to pay a much higher price than the Israelis living in the Settlements.
