Sewage floods neighbourhoods in Gaza

Up to 20,000 people face a new humanitarian crisis after power crisis prompts sewerage pipes to flood streets of Gaza.

    Power to one of Gaza's treatment center has been cut because of a lack of fuel.

    With Egypt cutting off the tunnels, ordinary Gazans have been forced to buy fuel from Israel at almost the double the price.

    Meanwhile, the sewers in Gaza have overflowed and could affect the homes of 20,000 people.
