JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli water company Hagihon has removed meters from 50 homes in the Old City of Jerusalem without prior notice for accumulated debts, an official said Monday.

Head of the water monitoring committee in the Old City Ashraf al-Zerba told Ma’an that a campaign to remove meters was started last week, and 50 homes were affected in the Bab Hutta, Bab al-Majles, al-Sayidia, and al-Wad neighborhoods.

Al-Zerba said the affected houses are home to 300 people including elderly, children and people with special needs.

Some meters were used by more than one house, he added.

A woman from the al-Baarani family, whose meter was removed, said that “the water was disconnected suddenly. The family has three sick people and three children, but with no fixed monthly income.”

There is no free lunch. Those who didn't pay have weird priorities - one would think the water bill would be right at the top, as living without it is impossible.
