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.
