ARTICLE RETRACTED

    Article retracted, 25/2/2015.

    Editor's note: An earlier version of this page hosted an article which stated that Israel had, without warning, opened a number of dams, which had resulted in a part of Gaza being flooded.

    This was false. 

    In southern Israel, there are no dams of the type which can be opened.

    We apologise for this error.
