GAZA, (PIC)– The Gaza municipality accused the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) of targeting sources of potable water in Gaza city during the military escalation a few days ago.

It said in a statement on Monday that an IOF army tank fired a shell at the 12-meter high Mintar water tank, which fell inside and polluted it.

The municipality said that it had to stop pumping water from there to inhabitants of eastern Shujaia suburb causing a water shortage problem.

It said that water was pumped from another well to the suburb to alleviate the water crisis, which is still affecting the populace.

The municipality charged Israel with commiting war crimes and crimes against humanity by targeting the citizens’ water sources, and asked the world community to assume its responsibility in bridling the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip
