At present, three drinking water pipelines are entering Gaza from Israel. Under the agreement, Israel is obliged to supply 10 million cubic meters of water to the Palestinian Territory, but in practice Israel supplies something more – 11.5 million cubic meters, according to the Times of Israel.
These days, the state water company Mekorot is working on a new water pipeline that will be located next to the water pipeline that enters central Gaza from the Eshkol area in Israel. The new water pipeline will have a larger capacity than the other three.
– The work on the pipe is being carried out with heavy military protection for fear that terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip will open fire on the workers who are doing the work with the pipeline in the border area, writes Times of Israel.
It is unclear how much more water can be supplied from Israel after the new pipeline is completed. The infrastructure in the Gaza Strip has not been expanded by the Hamas regime, and it is possible it will collapse further when water volumes increase significantly.
