Gaza City municipal teams worked for 24 hours to stem the flow of a sewage flooding homes in the city's eastern sector, Palestinian Authority (PA) based Ma'an News reported.
Faulty sewage lines burst and poured into homes on Friday. Perhaps symbolically, the deluge took place as the city prepared to welcome a flood of murderous terrorists being released by Israel.
"Workers face difficulties upgrading the sewage network because materials and machines necessary for the work are blocked by Israel's siege on the Gaza Strip," the press release added, requesting assistance from "human rights organizations" to help end the closure.
Construction materials can only enter Gaza via Israeli-controlled crossings for approved projects funded by international organizations and UN agencies, the report said. Restrictions on cement deliveries were relaxed last year in the aftermath of the Gaza flotilla confrontation.
