    It's bad enough that Israel is dumping in the sea, it is also dumping on Palestinians on the West Bank like the neighbourhood bully it is. It's no wonder it won't let go of the WB; it's Israel's main garbage dump. Israel has moved many of its polluting industries from places inside Israel to areas near the 1967 border or inside colonies. For example, a pesticide factory in Kfar Saba which produces dangerous pollutants has been moved to an area near Tulkarm, inside the West Bank. The wastewater from these factories has damaged the citrus trees and polluted the soil in the area, in addition to the damage that it may cause to the groundwater As a further example, the Dixon gas industrial factory which was located in Netanya has been moved into the same area near Tulkarm. Solid waste from these industries is burned in free air. In February 1997, the Palestinian Ministry of Health tested the solid waste located in the western section of Tulkarm city and reported that fiberglass and polyesters were present. The burn of this waste results in the emission of dangerous black smoke and toxic gases. Moreover, the western winds move these fumes into residential and public areas in Tulkarm city and the neighboring villages, causing a health risk.
