The Water Crisis in GAZA

There is a growing water crisis in Palestine. In Gaza, 95% of water is unfit for human consumption. Numerous military attacks on the Gaza Strip have devastated Gaza’s water infrastructure and the ten-year siege of Gaza has created a shortage of pipes, building materials, fuel and electricity. The water in Gaza is polluted with untreated sewage, agricultural chemicals, and it is brackish from seawater. Gaza’s water crisis poses grave health risks to children.
