UK urged Israel to unblock water supply in Gaza Strip

London, Oct 17 (Prensa Latina) The United Kingdom called on the Israeli authorities to unblock the water supply in the Gaza Strip, besieged after the escalation of the conflict between Tel Aviv and the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas.

According to the British executive, they are already taking steps to ensure that the response of this Middle Eastern country is within international law and alluded to bilateral talks aimed at restoring this service in the area.

10 Downing Street also indicated its intention to “do everything possible” to alleviate the humanitarian problems in the Gaza area, although Israel – a country which has maintained a repression and occupation of the Palestinian territory for the last 75 years – announced the continuity of the blockade.

According to the English channel Sky News, humanitarian workers warned that the Palestinian enclave is facing a situation of near collapse as a consequence of the decrease in water reserves and medical supplies.

Since the morning of October 7, rocket attacks against Israel from the Gaza Strip began, an operation described by the Hamas high leadership as a response to the aggressive actions against the Al-Aqsa mosque in East Jerusalem.

Following Tel Aviv’s response and the army’s continued bombardment of targets in the Strip, more than 3,000 Gazans were killed and 12,500 wounded during these attacks, and the death toll in Israel stands at 1,400.
