US hails Israeli decision to connect Palestinian town to water grid

Israel's decision to provide the Palestinian city of Rawabi with water is a welcome development, The State Department said on Friday.
"We are looking forward to the Rawabi complex receiving the water it needs to function, and that deliberate electricity cuts to Palestinian cities in the West Bank will cease," State Department spokesman Edgar Vasquez said in an e-mail to The Jerusalem Post. "We support all efforts to improve the investment climate and generate greater prosperity and opportunity for Palestinians and Israelis."
