Water supplies have been severely disrupted since the beginning of the offensive due to the destruction of water networks in different areas of the Gaza Strip, and the inability to operate water wells located in areas that are being frequently attacked by the Israeli military. As a result, around 50,000 people were left without water for two days. An under-construction water reservoir in the middle of the Gaza strip was also destroyed. The reservoir was expected to serve 150 thousand people in the Gaza Strip. [authors abstract]
