QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- During the inauguration of a water network funded by the International Committee of the Red Cross, protestors stuck a poster on an ICRC vehicle accusing the international body of siding with Israel.

The head of the ICRC mission in the West Bank was attending a ceremony to inaugurate the network in Jayyus village. The network brings water from artisan wells in the village’s outskirts which has been separated from the village by Israel’s separation wall.

When the ceremony came to an end, a sticker was found on the ICRC vehicle reading “long-term overwhelming structural bias for Israel.”

Palestinian minister of agriculture Walid Assaf, minister of local governance Saed al-Kuni and chairman of PA water authority Shaddad al-Attili were present at the inauguration along with the governor of Qalqiliya Rafi Rawajbah.

After the officials left visit the office of the Jayyus municipality, they found similar posters in English accusing the Red Cross of bias toward Israel.
