Both Iran's FARS News and Hamas' Al Qassam Brigades website report:

UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) has issued a report detailing the winter storm's impacts on the occupied Palestinian territories during the past few days.

The report pointed to the deliberate opening of Israeli dams toward Gaza borders which led to the flooding of several houses and large agricultural areas, deepening the economic losses and crises in the besieged Strip.

"Heavy flooding across the Gaza Strip resulted in the displacement of approximately 6,000 people to temporary shelters and relatives’ homes at the height of the storm. Most of the displaced families have left schools and community centers; however, approximately, 1,000 were still taking shelter in three schools as of 15 December," OCHA’s report said, pointing out that the situation in most flooded areas has improved except for Gaza city.

I debunked the dam story a week ago, but I was surprised that OCHA would have reported it. They are usually more subtle in their lies.

Turns out - they didn't.

The Iranian FARS' version quotes Palestine Info Center for that blurb. PIC is a Hamas-linked British organization but I couldn't find it mentioned there.

The UN OCHA story they quoted is here, and says nothing about any illusory Israeli dam.

Either PIC did report this story and I couldn't find it (or they removed it,) or Iran made up the story, or maybe Hamas made up the story.

Either way, you cannot trust a word from Iran or Hamas.
