More than 90 percent of the Gaza Strip’s water is undrinkable. The rest is quickly running out. A combination of factors is rapidly depriving the population of this most basic necessity. The United Nations warns the coastal enclave will become uninhabitable by 20-20 as there will be no drinking water left. Press TV’s Ashraf Shannon reports from Gaza.
