According to the Palestinian news agency WAFA, dozens of homes were flooded in Jabalia in northern Gaza, as well as in several neighborhoods of Gaza City and the Beach refugee camp to the west of the city, especially in low-lying areas. Commercial shops were also damaged as heavy rainwater entered them, causing significant property damage, Khaberni reported.

Many roads were closed after becoming flooded and accumulating rainwater, making it challenging for residents and vehicles to move. Strong winds blew, resulting in fallen trees and billboards, along with the scattering of zinc sheets.

The annual flooding of homes and neighborhoods in low-lying areas of the Gaza Strip is caused by deteriorating infrastructure and the need for regular maintenance of rainwater drainage systems. This situation is exacerbated by repeated attacks by the occupation on the region
