According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, most homes in Gaza are only getting water for a few hours every 3-5 days. The availability of safe drinking water has become worse because of fuel and electricity shortages. The UK is urging all parties to find a sustainable solution to the current situation and in the longer term, continues to urge the Israeli authorities to ensure fair distribution of water across the OPTs.
