 John Ging, the director of UNRWA operations in the Gaza Strip, has said that the inhabitants of Gaza were still living in bad conditions as a result of the ongoing siege.

He said in a press statement on Sunday that 80% of the inhabitants depend on UNRWA's humanitarian and food assistance. He added that the unemployment rate is at its highest level.

Ging noted that 90% of Gaza water is polluted and not fit for human consumption while 80 million cubic meters of sewage water is daily poured into the sea.

Tens of thousands of houses, which were destroyed or damaged during the last Israeli war, were still waiting reconstruction, the international official said, adding that educational and health sectors were also facing big challenges.
