Israel will double the amount of water entering the Gaza Strip, Maj.-Gen. Yoav Mordechai, the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories, said Wednesday.

In an interview published with Al-Quds newspaper, Mordechai said Gaza will receive 10 million cubic meters of water per year instead of the current 5 million cubic meters.

The increase comes following a need to improve the water supply to Gazan residents, Mordechai said, adding that he hoped "Hamas does not steal water from civilians as it steals construction material for rebuilding homes in the Strip."

Mordechai said Gaza is suffering from a severe water supply problem due the overuse of ground water on the coast.
