Unsafe Drinking Water Crisis in Gaza, Warns Health Ministry

The Palestinian Health Ministry announced that all residents of the Gaza Strip are currently consuming unsafe water, citing the shutdown of the public health laboratory and the blockade that prevents the importation of chlorine for water treatment. The ministry highlighted the health risks associated with the lack of proper drinking water treatment and raised concerns about potential disease outbreaks, evidenced by recent cases of meningitis and hepatitis. This crisis unfolds amid ongoing severe military actions by Israel following an attack by Hamas, leading to massive casualties and accusations of genocide by the International Court of Justice.–News Desk
