A Palestinian man walks near a sewage reservoir after it has collapsed causing a flood and damaging farms in Sheikh Ejleen neighborhood of Gaza City, Wednesday, May 4, 2016. A sewage reservoir in Gaza has collapsed, flooding about 25 acres of farmland and signaling yet another warning over the need to address the exacerbating water and sewage crisis. On Wednesday, sewer trucks were still sucking wastewater pools from unpaved lanes, groves, chicken farms and beehives in Sheikh Ejleen neighborhood, south Gaza City, a day after one side of the pond collapsed.

Poor sewage treatment is a feature of life in Gaza, a result of infrastructure damaged during Israel’s bombing campaigns and ongoing blockade.
