Hundreds of thousands of Gazans are without water after Israeli airstrikes that have wrecked the water and sewage system, and the whole strip is threatened with a water crisis within days, aid agencies warned Tuesday.The eight-day assault has caused massive damage to infrastructure and destroyed at least 560 homes, the U.N. Relief and Works Agency for Palestine refugees said.Several municipal water engineers have been killed in the conflict and Gaza's water service provider has suspended all field operations until the safety of its staff can be guaranteed, according to the ICRC, an independent aid agency whose teams have helped with emergency repairs.If there is a truce, the ICRC hopes for better access to the increasing numbers of casualties, spokeswoman Doumani said.
