Gaza warns of devastating floods if Israeli government opens dams

Gazan agriculture ministry and civil defense have warned of devastating floods if Israel carried out its threat to open Gaza valley dams.

Col. Yousef Al-Zahhar, the head of the civil defense squad in Gaza, told the PIC on Sunday that the resulting floods would damage 100 houses and hundreds of bee hives other than the fact that 100 square kilometers of cultivated land would be inundated in Mighraka in central Gaza.

He said that the livestock in the area would be drowned, noting that most of the people in the area are Bedouins who win their sustenance based on rearing livestock.

The ministry of agriculture, for its part, held the Israeli occupation authority responsible for consequences of such a step, recalling in a statement on Sunday that the IOA last year deliberately opened those dams without prior notice causing millions of dollars in damages.
