Water deal reached over over Dead Sea revival

Text size Aa Aa

Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority have signed a three-way deal on water sharing aimed at replenishing the drying Dead Sea.

It involves building a pipeline to carry brine from a desalination plant at the Red Sea to the Dead Sea while providing drinking water to the region.

Critics say it is an environmental risk.

They want a study made of the impact on the Dead Sea’s ecosystem even though it is expected to dry up entirely by 2050 if nothing is done.
