Three children were injured Tuesday morning in Beit Lahia, in the north of the Gaza Strip, due to the ongoing Israeli army shelling of the area.

Army tanks shelled residential areas and sewage treatment plants in the area.  Damage to the sewage plants has brought the threat of contamination of the Gaza water supply with sewage, and potential environmental disaster if shelling continues.

The children were aged 14, 15 and 16, but their names were not released by the hospital at the time of this report.
