Gaza City, January 9 (RHC)-- Hundreds of Palestinians have evacuated their homes in the besieged Gaza Strip following the outset of a heavy winter storm. According to Palestinian sources on Wednesday, hundreds of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip were forced to leave their homes which were heavily flooded by the storm called "Huda."
Meanwhile, Gaza Municipality warned that the storm can further destroy the infrastructure in the besieged strip which was considerably devastated during the Israeli attack last summer. The municipality also noted that the winter storm can bring about a humanitarian crisis as Gaza is still beset with various problems including power shortages.
Reports say that Huda has also hit Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, and Egypt.
