In combinatie met de 100.000 daklozen als gevolg van de meest recente Israëlische ‘zelfverdedigingsactie’, levert dat extra veel ellende op.
En dan is er ook nog zoiets als een blokkade:
The floods are exacerbated by a chronic lack of fuel that limits how much water can be pumped out of flood-stricken areas.
The fuel shortages are a result of the eight-year-old Israeli siege, which also limits the import of other kinds of machinery related to pumping and sewage management that could help Gazans combat the floods. […]
The Israeli siege has compounded the difficulties faced by Palestinians in Gaza this year, as tens of thousands displaced by Israeli bombing over summer have been unable to rebuild.
Israel has largely maintained its restriction on imports of concrete and other rebuilding materials, slowing reconstruction.
