From Nine To Noon, 9:40 am on 9 September 2015

A new United Nations report says Gaza won't be fit to live in within five years if current trends persist. The UNCTAD report highlights the severe crises related to water and electricity, as well as the destruction of vital infrastructure during the military operations in July and August 2014. Gaza's 1.8 million inhabitants rely on coastal aquifers as their main source of freshwater, yet 95 per cent of this water is not safe to drink. Mr Mahmoud Elkhafif, is one of the report's co-authors.
