    This part of the article is completely and factually wrong: "Royal HaskoningDHV probably stands on firmer ground by citing international law, but on the other hand abandoning the project is intellectually absurd. The Kidron project aims to clean up raw sewage that flows through Palestinian villages and would have benefitted Palestinians, not settlers. It was being led by a joint venture between Israelis and Palestinians." In a press release, high-level Palestinian officials clarified that "The PWA [Palestinian Water Authority] has openly communicated its opposition to the planned construction of the Sawahreh Sharqeyeh WWTP on a number of occasions. In particular, Dr. Attili [head of the PWA] dismissed claims that the project involved cooperation between the PWA and Israel, or that Palestinians were its main beneficiaries. That the Sawahreh Sharqeyeh WWTP will process sewage from some adjacent Palestinian communities does not in any way justify Israel’s continued construction of illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank. Nor does it absolve Israel of its responsibilities under international humanitarian law" Also doesn´t say in the press release, but the treated wastewater would have been used to irrigate agriculture in illegal Jewish settlements in the Jordan Valley and Dead Sea area--therefore consolidating them and allowing them to export more produces to the EU and Palestinian markets.
