Heavy rains, flooding force evacuations in the Gaza Strip

Heavy rains, flooding force evacuations in the Gaza StripHeavy rains have caused flooding across the Gaza Strip, overwhelming the territory’s beleaguered sewage system and forcing at least eight families to evacuate from their makeshift homes. Basma al-Bishawi said some residents used buckets to try to bail water from their homes “in vain” on Thursday, and that he pulled his own son from a river of sewage. The restrictions, and three wars between Israel and Hamas, have taken a heavy toll on Gaza’s infrastructure.
