Tuesday’s flood of human excrement from a broken sewage reservoir, described as a “frothing cascade of waste and mud” which killed five people (and who knows how many will fall ill from it), nevertheless did not stop Gazans from their most important enterprise, trying to kill Jews.
A total of seven Qassam rockets were fired at Israel from Gaza today, and the IDF attacked from the air a cell of three terrorists who were in the process of firing more.
The tsunami of stinking slime was probably caused by local residents stealing sand from the embankment of the reservoir in order to sell it to construction companies.
Rescue crews and Hamas gunmen rushed to the area to search for people feared buried under the sewage and mud. Dressed in wetsuits, they paddled boats through the layer of foam floating on the green and brown rivers of waste. Others waded up to their hips into the sewage.
The noxious smell of waste and dead animals hung in the air.
Angry residents drove reporters away and mobbed government officials. When Interior Minister Hani Kawasmeh arrived to survey the damage, his bodyguards fired in the air to disperse the crowd. — AP
Could they be tired of watching billions of dollars of aid from international donors flushed into the pockets of the terrorist militia leaders or used to buy weapons and explosives to kill each other and attack Israel, rather than being used to fix the deteriorated infrastructure?
Update [1638 PST]: The death toll from the accident has reached six.
