Palestine: Sheikh Shakhboot bin Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, UAE Minister of State, formally opened the water desalination plants set up by the UAE in the Egyptian city of Rafah to provide drinking water to the Gaza Strip’s inhabitants, carrying out the orders of President Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
In order to provide water to the Gaza Strip, the UAE built six stations with a combined daily capacity of 1,200,000 gallons, benefiting over 600,000 people. The stations were completed in less than three weeks.
Desalination plant construction is a part of the humanitarian operation “Gallant Knight 3,” which was directed by the President of the United Arab Emirates to aid the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip. This initiative reflects the UAE’s longstanding support for the Palestinian people and its willingness to stand by them in their trying times.
As Sheikh Shakhboot pointed out, the purpose of these stations’ construction is to guarantee that the Palestinian population in the Gaza Strip has access to potable water that is sustainable and clean. Under the leadership of President Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) persists in its admirable humanitarian efforts to aid the Palestinian people in overcoming their challenging circumstances, particularly those faced by women and children.
Sheikh Shakhboot was accompanied by a delegation comprising several Federal National Council members and high-ranking representatives from the nation’s official agencies and humanitarian organizations.
The effective water pumping procedure into the Gaza Strip provides shelter centres with essential daily drinking water, addressing the population’s lack of access to clean water.
