Israeli war planes hit Sunday a water pipe in the Gaza Strip city of Khan Younis.

Mayor of al-Fakhari municipality, Auda al-Amour said that the missile that hit Salah al-Deen road, which links between Rafah and Khanyounis, destroyed the water pipe that supplies water to the towns of al-Fakhari and Um an-Nasser.

He added that the destruction of the pipe prevented 6500 people of water, asserting the municipality was making efforts to fix the pipe.

Al -Amour called on the international community and the Quartet for Mideast Peace [made up of the US, European Union, United Nationa and Russia) to shoulder responsibility for the fate of the Palestinian people and to pressure Israel to end its collective punishment policy against the Palestinian people.
