The UN official denounced that Israel’s blockade of the border prevented the scheduled entry of some 600 trucks loaded with basic products, food, medical supplies and fuel.
The Palestinian Authority for Energy and Natural Resources warned that the lack of basic supplies such as fuel, food and medical supplies, among other vital products, could create an imminent humanitarian crisis.
The only power plant in the Strip does not produce the required energy after 16 years of intense blockade; the available quantities of fuel are running out, as the fuel supply has been stopped since last Tuesday, the Palestinian source reported.
The Israeli Army has been constantly bombarding Gaza for the last three days, and the resistance responds by launching rockets at the illegal settlements. This portends a crisis in vital sectors such as health, water, and electricity, among other problems.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health stated that the result of Israel’s aggression in recent days has left at least 28 deaths and 93 injured, including children and civilians.
The Arab League expressed its full solidarity with the Palestinian people and supported their firmness and legitimate rights to self-defense, and called on the UN Security Council to assume its responsibilities in maintaining peace and exert the necessary pressure on the occupying government.
During a joint press conference with the foreign ministers of Jordan, Germany and France, the Egyptian Chancellor, Sameh Shoukr, called on the international community and the active countries and sponsors of the peace process to intervene in order to stop the aggression against the Palestinian people.
