CAIRO, Egypt

A n Egyptian study has found that large amounts of groundwater are moving from Egypt toward Israel.

"The reason is that there are a number of valleys in the Egyptian Peninsula of Sinai that are sliding toward the Israeli side that lead groundwater to move to Israel," according to the study conducted by the Groundwater Sector at the Ministry of Irrigation and Water Resources.
