    A welcome move -about $4 a head won’t do much though…Gaza is a crowded place
    Water lines ,when underground, are not deep lack of equipment has meant the underground portions are in shallow hand dug and filled trenches..same for sewers of many are just open trenches. Hundreds of millions of dollars are needed to improve systems..the area is a breeding ground for disease vectors which recognize no borders..and so Israel too is in danger.
    Heavy traffic such as 60-ton tanks moving over and through shallow sewer and water passageways destroys them.
