But I thought that "settlers" stole all the water!

From Ma'an:
Palestinian Authority police have dispersed two fights in the southern West Bank city of Hebron and the nearby Nuba village, detaining 15 suspected of involvement.

Police said a fight broke out at a public swimming pool, where suspects used clubs and pelted one another with stones. Five sustained various injuries, and five others were detained.
You mean, Hebron - the town of 70,000 Arabs held hostage by a few hundred Jews - has a swimming pool? But I thought that the settlers stole all the water of the West Bank for their own wasteful swimming pools and the poor Palestinian Arabs had none to drink, let alone swim in!

Here's a photo of a pool in Hebron that I somehow managed to find last year when the BBC had written a story about how Palestinian Arab water was all taken by evil Israelis.

And that is hardly the only swimming pool in the territories.
