A New Desalination Plant in Gaza

Some 75,000 of Gaza's 2 million people will have access to clean drinking water via this new desalination plant - as long as there is fuel to run it and Israel doesn't bomb it:

“Water resources have long been critically scarce in the Gaza Strip, and the situation is getting beyond dire. A new UNICEF seawater desalination plant is providing safe tap water to communities that previously bought or imported their drinking water.”
