Middle East faces political battles over water shortfalls

Clip: 12/18/2018 | 6m 33s

The Middle East is facing a water crisis, and the divisions between Israel and Palestinians have only exacerbated the problem. But whereas Israel is a pioneer in desalination and produces much of its own water, in Gaza, Palestinians struggle with access to clean water due to an Israel-imposed blockade. Special correspondent Fred de Sam Lazaro has a two-part look at water equity in the Middle East.
