Maar naar nu blijkt, is dit allemaal onzin. Al Jazeera plaatste een verontschuldiging:
An earlier version of this page hosted an article which stated that Israel had, without warning, opened a number of dams, which had resulted in a part of Gaza being flooded.
This was false.
In southern Israel, there are no dams of the type which can be opened.
We apologise for this error.
