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,
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.
