Israel used Gaza as a testing ground for development of drones.[1]

Water

Israel has been charged with carrying out a "systemic and willful campaign to deny Palestinians access to clean water" in Gaza. It has been called "a comprehensive violation of one of the most basic human rights. It consists of a two-pronged approach: the visible mass destruction of water and sanitation infrastructure, reinforced by invisible policies of closure and occupation, siege and confiscation that block the repair of infrastructure. Together, these tactics prevent the existence of sustainable Palestinian communities, driving people from their land, their homes, and communities."[2] Project censored wrote in October 2014 that "In Gaza, 1.7 million Palestinians currently live without clean drinking water. With no perennial streams and low rainfall, Gaza relies on a single aquifer for all of its fresh water" and predicted that it could become unusably contaminated by 2016.[3]

Gas reserves

Nafeez Ahmed noted that Gaza has large reserves of natural gas, which no doubt play a part in Arab-Israel matters: "The Israel-Palestine conflict is clearly not all about resources. But in an age of expensive energy, competition to dominate regional fossil fuels are increasingly influencing the critical decisions that can inflame war."[4]
