Residents of several neighborhoods in the southern and eastern part of Jerusalem must boil their drinking and cooking water for two minutes before use until further notice, the Health Ministry said at noon on Wednesday.

The reason is “a suspicion of contamination” of water supplies in Baka, Abu Tor, Talpiot, Tsur Baher, Silwan, Ras el-Amud, the Old City, Mamilla and Morasha (Musrara), the ministry said.



Do not use tap water for drinking, brushing teeth or “dealing with food” without first boiling the water for two minutes, the ministry said. The Gihon water consortium and the ministry are conducting checks to ensure the safety of the water, it added.

For more information, call the Gihon information number *2070.
