Large areas of Palestinians lands, and several homes, in the al-Meghraqa and Gaza Valley areas, in central Gaza, have been completely flooded after Israel opened its dams towards Gaza.The Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) has reported that the army deliberately opened the dams, that were overloaded with rainwater, and flooded large areas in Gaza, drowning agricultural lands, and some homes, causing significant property damage.

Israel repeatedly opens its dams towards the besieged Gaza Strip during winter time, especially following heavy rain, inflicting serious losses and destruction in various areas of the coastal region, in addition to many injuries.
