European campaign: IOA trying to retain Gaza in state of clinical death
The European campaign against the Gaza siege has condemned the continued Israeli occupation authority”s ban on fuel supplies to Gaza, warning that the condition in Gaza was heading to a “serious humanitarian crisis”.
The campaign”s spokesman, Madi Arafat, said in Brussels on Thursday that the limited fuel supplies to Gaza to operate the power station for a few days without allowing other kinds of fuel was an attempt to retain besieged Gaza in a state of clinical death.
Arafat repeated his call on Egypt to open the Rafah crossing especially when the UN had warned of a real humanitarian crisis in Gaza. He also pointed to UNRWA”s decision to halt its relief work that covers around a million Palestinians in Gaza.
The European campaign asked the world community to adopt a speedy and effective stand regarding what is going on in Gaza, warning of remaining silent vis-à-vis the execution process in the biggest prison in history.
