The fuel needed to run water systems in Gaza is in short supply, leading to the population being forced to drink dirty and salty water. This is due to perennial electricity shortages due to years of political conflict. The sanitation crisis has been described as a “public health emergency” and has been worsened by the destruction of water infrastructure during multiple conflicts between Israel and Hamas. This has left many Gazans without access to clean water and with no reliable source of fresh water. As the crisis has worsened in recent months, many organizations have provided donations or aid for the people to try and soften the impact, such as providing water treatment chemicals, however it is not enough. Gaza needs permanent solutions to its electricity problems in order to ensure that its citizens have access to clean and safe water.
