On 16 February 2003, the Supreme Court of Israel dismissed a petition filed by Adalah in May 2001, demanding access to clean drinking water for thousands of Palestinian Bedouin citizens of Israel living in seven unrecognized villages in the Naqab (Negev). The Supreme Court ruled that certain measures taken by the state, as a result of the filing of the petition, provided sufficient remedies to meet the petitioners' demands. These measures included: (i) the establishment of an inter-ministerial Water Committee. While the state initially argued that only individual families could approach the Committee, it later conceded to Adalah's position that the acute lack of water for so many people required collective action. As such, the Water Committee has agreed to hear requests for water points from groups of 10 or more families; and (ii) the establishment of additional water access points for the unrecognized villages. The petition was filed by Adalah Staff Attorney Marwan Dalal on behalf of Palestinian Bedouin citizens of Israel living in seven unrecognized villages in the Naqab, the Regional Council for Unrecognized Villages in the Naqab, the Association of Forty, the Galilee Society, Physicians for Human Rights - Israel, and in Adalah's own name. The seven unrecognized villages represented by the petitioners are Abu Tlul, Shahbi, Wadi el-Neem, El-Gara, Em Tnan, Em Batin, and Drejat. Adalah's petition charged that the National Infrastructure Minister, the Water Commissioner, the Israeli Water Company, the Minister of Agriculture and Environmental Protection, and the Interior Minister are maintaining a policy of denying clean and accessible water to these unrecognized villages. Most residents of these unrecognized villages obtained water via improvised, plastic hose hook- ups or unhygienic metal containers, which are used to transport the water from a single water point located on main roads quite far from their homes. The petition included an expert opinion from a med
