The aquatic extracts of Citrullus colocynthis and Punica granatum peel were used against bacteria isolated from urinary tract infections, and bacterial samples were taken from people suffering from (UTI) randomly without specifying the gender and age, then the samples were cultivated in MacConkey agar medium and incubated for 24h at 37°C,the E. coli diagnosed by Api 20E system, where most of the cases were caused by E. coli, and the minimum inhibitor concentrations (MIC) were determined for plant extracts showing that the minimum inhibitor concentration of Citrullus colocynthis extract is less than the Punica granatum extract which ranges between (0.01-0.1mg/ml) and (0.1-1mg/ml) Respectively. This means that the antimicrobial activity of bitter melon extract was stronger than pomegranate peel extract against E. coli
