Could desalination help prevent water wars in the Middle East?

But in the past decade, desalination technology has made huge advances.

Israel now produces most of its drinking water from sea water, and other parts of the region are looking to do the same.

But there are concerns about environmental damage caused by the shortage of rainfall and some desalination processes.
