Israel Cuts Access To 85% Of Gaza Fishing Waters


A recent report published Tuesday by the Untied Nation Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA)

showed that 35% of Gaza’s farmland and 85% of its fishing waters

are totally or partially inaccessible due to Israeli military measures.

The report said that the population of Gaza is 1.6 million,

with over 50% under 18,

and 38% of the population live in poverty.

OCHA showed that the average wage in the Gaza Strip declined by over 20% in the past six years,

while 26% of the Gazan workforce,

including 38% of youths,

is unemployed,

leading to 54% of Palestinians in Gaza are food insecure

while over 75% are aid dependent.

The report showed that 50-80 million litres of partially treated sewage are dumped in the sea each day,

while over 90% of the water from the Gaza aquifer is undrinkable.
