Gaza (QNN)- The occupation state of Israel deliberately pumped large amounts of rainwater into Gaza, flooding hundreds of agricultural acres on Sunday, according to the Ministry of Agriculture.
The Israelis opened their dams, making large amounts of rainwater to flood lands in eastern Gaza.
The spokesperson for the Ministry of Agriculture, Adham Basiouni, told AA that “Israel flooded agricultural lands, cow ranches, and bee farms in eastern Shujaiyyah neighborhood after opening its dams”.
“Opening the dams caused soil erosion and caused crops to be flooded. It also led to losses in the cattle and bees, which resulted in severe losses for the farmers”.
Basiouni noted that “every year, the occupation state deliberately and all of a sudden opens its dams to flood Palestinian agricultural lands, which causes severe losses.”
