Ben Gurion University responded regretfully at the University of Johannesburg's decision, saying that the South African university's decision to sever the agreement designed to solve water contamination issues in a reservoir near Johannesburg will mostly hurt South African residents.

University President Prof. Rivka Carmi said that "the only losers in this decision are the people of South Africa."

In the official statement, BGU said it is still committed to continuing ongoing water, health care, and sustainable development collaborative work with Palestinian researches.
