Report accuses Israel of targeting Gaza’s water facilities

A little-publicized report released during the final weeks of Israel’s summer offensive on the Gaza Strip last year accuses Israel of targeting water and wastewater infrastructure during the 51-day assault, despite having been provided the coordinates of all water and wastewater facilities.

Entitled Water Sector Damage Assessment Report, the paper by the Palestinian Water Authority (PWA) meticulously documents $34 million in damages that have caused a humanitarian and environmental crisis throughout the Gaza Strip.

Yet the damage detailed in the report is likely incomplete as the team is unable to assess damage to pipe systems because most of the damage is underground and covered by massive amounts of rubble.

Israeli Military Opened Fire On Civilians Waving White Flags: Report

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are adopting a two year old Syrian boy named Moussa who lost both his parents. Angelina stated that part of the reason for the adoption is to bring awareness to what is happening in Syria, the civil war crisis. While Angelina was visiting a refugee camp in Jordan where little Moussa was, she starting tearing up and Moussa smiled and wrapped his arms around her. From that moment on Angelina knew she wanted to adopt him and have him as one of her own children. Many children in Syria share the same fate as little Moussa, loosing a family member or even their whole family. Now little Moussa is leaving the refugee camp and is going to live in a warm home with loving parents. I hope this good hearted action starts a chain reaction that will get people to wake up and come to the aid of the suffering in countries like Syria and all over the world, we sure need more people like Angelina and Brad.
