Gaza doctors warn of looming health crisis

Doctors say damage to territory's infrastructure has left it vulnerable to outbreaks of deadly illnesses.

    Doctors in Gaza say urgent action is needed to prevent the spread of water-borne illnesses such as dysentery and cholera.

    More than 50 days of Israeli bombardment has left the territory with damaged water purification and sewerage systems.
