Gaza Strip Inter-Agency Humanitarian Fact Sheet | June 2008

Many farmers have returned to their fields close to the border fence. At least two were shot but many others were able to harvest crops. No Palestinians or Israelis have been killed in or around Gaza as a result of the conflict since before 19 June. Imports still fall far short of the daily average of 450 truckloads in January 2007. Imports remain approximately 90% food. While the Coastal Municpalities Water Utility (CMWU) reported improved supplies of fuel and spare parts, raw and partially treated sewage continues to pour into the Mediterranean Sea from Gaza. UNRWA began its summer games which offer recreational activities to 250,000 children in the Gaza Strip. The Summer Games create an additional temporary 3500 jobs via UNRWA’s Job Creation Programme. Electricity supply of 120 megawatts from Israel, 17 megawatts from Egypt and 55 megawatts only allows for 19 to 20 hours of supply in all areas of Gaza except Rafah, which benefits exclusively from supply from Egypt.
