Turkey delivers drinking water to Gaza

The Turkish Red Crescent delivers 700 cubic meters of drinking water every day to the Gaza Strip, which has been suffering incessant Israeli attacks since July 7.

The aid organization supplies the drinking water to 10 schools in the southern city of Rafah where Palestanians are taking shelter, according to a written statement on Thursday.

On Tuesday, Red Crescent delivered three shipments of medical supplies to Gaza.

Since July 7, Israel has pounded the Gaza Strip with fierce aerial bombardments with the ostensible aim of halting rocket fire from the strip, leaving 1372 people dead and more than 7000 others injured.

The vast majority of the dead and injured victims are civilians: women, children and the elderly.

Gaza-based resistance factions, meanwhile, continue rocket fire at Israeli cities in response to relentless Israeli bombardments.

Israel's military operation, dubbed operation "Protective Edge," is the self-proclaimed Jewish state's third major offensive within the last six years against the densely-populated Gaza Strip – which is home to some 1.8 million Palestinians.
