Israeli-Imposed Power Shortages in Gaza Cut Water Access by One-Third

HeadlineAug 23, 2017

The United Nations Children’s Fund says the power shortages in the Gaza Strip have reduced access to water by one-third in recent months, in the midst of a sweltering summer heat wave. The Israeli government-imposed power reductions have also disrupted the functioning of hundreds of water and wastewater facilities, causing the number of waterborne cases of diarrhea to double for children under the age of three. The United Nations has warned the Gaza Strip has become unlivable for its 2 million residents.
