Calming Gaza's waters and protecting its shores

A new project has been launched to help calm the waves which crash into Gaza's shores and protect seaside properties.

Engineer Nasser Thabet said this is the first of its kind measure in Gaza, which it is hoped will see the waves slowed and calmed upon their approach to the beach and therefore their ability to erode the local area reduced.
