Lutheran Church reports 4 million tons of rubble in Gaza as a result of Israel's war

GAZA, (PIC)-- The Environmental Education Center of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land has said that the Israeli aggression on Gaza had left behind around four million tons of rubble.

The center said in a report prepared on the occasion of the World Cleanliness Day that it takes between six to eight months of work to remove such an amount of rubble.

It pointed out that the tools available at the ministry of works in Gaza are old and could handle only 20% of that amount of debris.

It said that the destruction in the latest war on Gaza was fivefold more than the previous one in 2012, warning of a horrific humanitarian and environmental disaster as a result.

The center urged all justice lovers and environment supporters in the world to extend a helping hand to Gaza to remove this big amount of debris and to rebuild the beleaguered enclave. more
