On July 6, Oxfam issued an updated press release. Its assessment of conditions in Gaza was grim warning "thousands of refugees across Gaza will face imminent cuts in water and sewage services if more fuel is not provided in the coming days and weeks." It said the Gaza Coastal Municipality Water Utility (CMWU) had to cut its water supply in half from eight to four hours a day because of fuel shortages affecting 65,000 people in the Strip's largest camp. Fuel is also running out for sewage drainage pumps in the Saflawi neighborhood. Without it, "sewage (may spill) into the streets....in days, contaminating the remaining water supply....spreading life-threatening disease (in) the densely-populated camp."
A UN report is no more encouraging from an article on Media for Global Development June 15. It says the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) for Palestinian refugees was forced to scale back its work while Gaza was in conflict. It "severely limited its ability to (bring in vitally needed) humanitarian supplies" to the 80% of Gazans dependent on them. It calls 40% of the population "food insecure" meaning they could starve without help. It explained even in the absence of street fighting there are critical shortages of food, water, medical supplies, fuel and other essentials. Outside help is critically needed, but Gazans aren't getting it because Israel closed the entry points between Egypt and the Strip stopping critically needed supplies from entering.
The Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories, B'Tselem, raised its alarm as well June 17 with an article titled "Urgent Appeal from Israeli Human Rights Groups to Israeli Defense Minister: Open Gaza's Borders to Prevent a Humanitarian Crisis." It says hundreds of refugees are trapped between the sealed Erez crossing and Hamas inside Gaza, including the sick and injured from recent events in the Territory. It also cites critical food and medical supply shortages and urgently says: "The state of Israel cannot stand idly by at a time when the fundamental human rights of Gaza residents are being violated and the right to life is being threatened."
Whether by bullet, bomb or sanctions, the Israeli Killing Machine is relentless in its determined mass extermination of the Palestinians, especially ones under the 24/7 siege in the Gaza Strip.
While Israel slaughters the indigenous Palestinians in Gaza with impunity, most of the so-called "civilized" world either turns its head or acts like Nero, playing the fiddle while Rome burned.
Israel has developed its mass extermination of the Palestinians into a science. Instead of using the thuggish IOF to bomb, strafe and shell the Gaza Strip into oblivion, Israel's weapon of choice for now is the blockade.
This sinister and very deadly embrace of Gaza has turned that decimated strip of land into one huge, killing field. To deny Gaza the essentials of life, like potable water, food and medicines has got to be the most horrendous crime against humanity in the 21st Century.
The sick and twisted Zionist regime, thru its blockade of Gaza, has denied adequate fuel to be delivered to Gaza. Which means that there is not near enough fuel for generators that supply power to operate the sewage system. Nor enough fuel for electricity, during the hottest months of the year.
What crime did the people of the Gaza Strip commit? NONE. They pissed off the Zionazi's in Israel by voting for the party of THEIR choice, HAMAS, and not the one pre-selected by Israel, FATAH.
For that "uppity" act, Israel plans on punishing the people of the Gaza Strip with the blockade and sanctions until they die. A slow, horrible death, due to lack of drinking water, food and medicines.
Yes, the Zionist's heroes, the WW II Nazi's, would be proud of their bastard creation that has updated and put into effect the 21st Century's version of the "FINAL SOLUTION."
