B'tselem: Gaza, 95% of factories are closed, 93% of water is polluted 14 Jun 2010 Most of Gaza's factories have closed and its water is polluted as a result of Israel's siege policy, according to a new report being released today by the Israeli Human Rights group – B'tselem. The siege policy has "led to economic collapse in Gaza," B'tselem noted in a 44-page report that looked at Gaza, the West Bank and east Jerusalem during the period from January 2009 to the end of April 2010.
