By Robert Smith, Associated PressThe Mesopotamian Irrigations System (MIS) is the largest irrigation system in the world.
Its 1,400-kilometer (620-mile) supply lines run through Iraq, Syria, Jordan and the West Bank.
The system is vital for both farming and irrigation in areas of the Middle East that have been devastated by drought.
It’s the largest source of water for the country.
But the system is also critical for millions of Palestinians, who live in areas where its supply has been disrupted by Israeli restrictions.
The government of Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah, whose government oversees the MIS, said in June that it would not renew its license.
The MIS supplies water to more than 500 million people, according to the United Nations.
The U.N. has been calling for the MIS to be renewed.
In a statement issued on July 5, the agency said that “all parties to the conflict must ensure that their water resources are safe and protected in a way that respects the rights of those most vulnerable to the water crisis.”
State Department also said in a statement that it had received a call from the State Department’s Coordinator for the Middle Eastern Peace process to renew the license of the MIS.
In its statement, the U.S. called on “all sides to refrain from further attacks against the MIS in the next 48 hours or else the license may be revoked and/or the MISA and MISA water projects would be canceled.”
The government in Damascus, Syria’s capital, has not commented on the renewal of the MIS.
The Syrian government said in July that it has “no plans to renew its licence to operate the MIS.”
The Syrian government has repeatedly called on its neighbor Israel to stop interfering with the water supply.
The conflict has left millions of people homeless and made life difficult for farmers.
In addition to water shortages, Israel has restricted imports from Syria in an effort to stop it from importing water from neighboring Lebanon.
Israel has said it will provide water for Syrian farmers who want to grow their own food, but has yet to supply it.
