GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Gaza City municipality was completely destroyed after Israeli airstrikes hit nearby areas, the general director of the Health and Environment department said.

Abd al-Rahim Abu al-Qumboz said that Israeli airstrikes targeted a building “wall-to-wall” with the municipality which caused parts of the municipality building to collapse.

The main butchery building in the city, which provides meat for the whole city, was also destroyed by airstrikes.

Abu al-Qumboz told Ma'an that facilities of the municipality in different parts of the Gaza Strip were destroyed and damaged by airstrikes; the sewage plant which treats and refines 25 percent of wastewater was completely destroyed.

The airstrikes destroyed a water line that provides clean drinking water for al-Shate refugee camp.

Abu al-Qumboz called upon international institutions to intervene and stop the Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip, which will cause a major health disaster if it proceeds.
