This rainwater samples harvested for drinking and agriculture from Gaza collected inNovember 2012 were analyzed for different rare metals Rb, Zr, Ti, Tl, Sb, Sc,Y, and rare earth metals La, and Ce. These metals usually have no maximumacceptable limits as there is no sufficient data about their toxicity to humanhealth. Their control should be therefore controlled in water to monitor theirconcentration in water ground, harvested, etc

This study was conducted todetermine the water quality of harvested water which is used for drinking inthe study area. 43 water samples were collected in November 2012 during thefirst rain from house wells and rain water pools. The concentrations of themetals detected in the collected harvested rainwater vary significantly betweenthe 43 samples, and all of them were detected in all water samples analyzed inthis study. The results obtained from this study suggest a possible risk to thepopulation of the study area given the high concentration of some metals thathave no maximum allowed concentration, and the fact that for many people in thestudy area, harvested rain water is a main source of their water supply.
