66 percent of Palestinians in Gaza hit by water-borne diseases

LONDON: Palestine’s Environmental Quality Authority said on Thursday that 66 percent of people in Gaza are suffering from water-borne diseases such as cholera, chronic diarrhea and intestinal diseases, Palestine News and Information Agency reported.

This health crisis is due to a scarcity of potable water and the shutdown of all water desalination facilities, a situation exacerbated by the Israeli military attack on the occupied strip.
