Days of Palestine, Gaza Strip –Due to the strict Israeli-led siege, thousands of displaced Palestinian families in Gaza face the strongest cold wave, hitting the region, in the open air. Palestinian Meteorological Department said that the cold wave would last until Wednesday, warning of floods and road closures due to the expected snow fall. It also warned of foggy weather from Tuesday until Thursday. The Palestinian Civil Defence put its staff on alert, fearing any emergency across the Gaza Strip, where the sewage system and rainwater pumps are not functioning fully due to the decade-long Israeli siege. Thousands of Gaza residents are still living in makeshift tents and caravans after their houses were destroyed during the 51-day Israeli offensive in 2014. Others are living in partly damaged properties which are susceptible to rainwater and the cold weather as they have not been repaired following the war. Two Israeli electricity lines which supply Gaza were cut at the start of the cold wave, increasing the plight of Gaza’s residents.
