Palestinians say: Palestinian Authority 'irresponsible' in handling of sewage disaster

Of course, Palestinian officials try to blame every disaster that results from their malfeasance on Israel, but Palestinian people have a different view.

Palestinian Authority 'irresponsible' in handling of sewage disaster
Date: 30 / 03 / 2007  Time:  12:02   
Gaza - ma'an – Although the environmental disaster that occurred three days ago in the Gaza Strip was expected, the Palestinian Authority did nothing to prevent it according to the citizens of the village of Um Nasser.
The bursting of a cesspit near the village destroyed most of the houses in Um Nasser with floods of sewage water.
Some Palestinian officials blamed the Israeli occupation forces as they prevented a sewage treatment firm from tending to the cesspit.
At least 250 of the houses were destroyed and the village inhabitants were forced to sleep in the desert in the cold March weather.
Many of the villagers are afraid that diseases might spread from the floods of sewage and warned of an impending crisis.
5 Palestinians were killed and 35 injured during the floods and the damage done to property mounted to millions of US dollars.
The relatives of the victims are calling on the Palestinian Authority to sue all those responsible for the tragedy.
The villagers said that they will never forget the disaster and insisted that this terrible accident is never repeated.
They called on the PA to find a suitable solution to the problem and appealed to officials to solve the problem of the families who are now living outdoors.
They also urged the PA to compensate them for their losses.
The villagers insisted that the PA officials are not paying enough attention to the crisis and some accused the PA of lying about the incident.
Other villagers said that they have contacted the PA officials but none of them have visited the scene of the disaster.
The villagers accused the PA of not warning the local citizens of the dangers in the area.
