GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Gaza Ministry of Health confirmed that as of last April, 75% of the coastline of besieged Gaza, which extends over 40 km, is contaminated with sewage due to the power outages caused by Israeli occupation. The Gaza sea-area was marked as not suitable for bathing and is prone to causing several infectious diseases that can affect the residents. The Gaza Strip has become the only place left to live and breathe in for two million Palestinians, whose lives are at cost.
