Desalination plant brings relief to Gaza
International aid workers opened a new desalination plant in the Gaza Strip, bringing some relief to a territory where 97 percent of the water is undrinkable. It is the Hamas-ruled territory’s second and largest desalination plant. While it will not solve Gaza’s water woes, officials said the project marked an important step. “Despite the small production, this gives symbolism to Gaza residents that the train of water solution is now on track,” said Monzer Shublaq, director of Coastal Municipalities Water Utility in Gaza.
