The Health Ministry warned residents of various Jerusalem neighborhoods of a potential water contamination Wednesday, and instructed them to boil tap water for two minutes before drinking or using with food or for brushing teeth.

The areas affected by the suspected pollution are: the Old City, Baka, Abu Tor, Talpiot, Zur Baher, Silwan, Ras al-Amud, Mamilla and Morasha.

The Gihon Water Company and Health Ministry were performing tests on the water Wednesday afternoon.

The municipality set up several stations in these areas for water pickup, and encouraged residents to bring their own bottles to the sites.
