What new dangers does winter bring to Gaza residents?

Palestinians in the war-torn Gaza Strip face an increased risk of disease.

The Israeli attack on Gaza has caused a humanitarian catastrophe for the 2.3 million inhabitants of the besieged Palestinian territory.

Hundreds of thousands of people were forced to leave their homes, some sheltering only in a plastic tent.

Essential medicines, food, water and fuel are in short supply after Israel severely restricted supplies amid an “all-out” siege of the enclave.

The arrival of winter brings even greater challenges and threats – not only related to the cold, but also the risk of disease in the absence of functioning sanitation and water treatment systems.
