UN rapporteur accuses Israel of starving Gazans

Ramallah, Mar 1 (Prensa Latina) The UN special rapporteur on human rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, Francesca Albanese, accused Israel of starving to death the population of the Gaza Strip.

“Ask yourselves how you would feel if a country starved you and your children by stopping food at the border, bombing food dropped from the air to bypass the blockade, and shooting people queuing for the few aid trucks that are allowed in,” she wrote in X.

Her questions have as a backdrop, the massacre that occurred on Thursday in Gaza City, when Israeli soldiers shot at a crowd of citizens waiting for the arrival of vehicles loaded with food.

According to official figures, at least 112 Palestinians were killed and another 760 wounded.

The UN rapporteur also criticized Western media coverage of the Israeli aggression against the coastal enclave, where 2.3 million people live.

Western media simply cannot report honestly on Gaza, she said.

Albanese also posted photos of Anhar, a Palestinian boy who died due to lack of food. “Anhar had puffy cheeks and bright eyes, but four and a half months of Israeli assault turned him into skin and bones. He died of hunger on Tuesday,” she denounced.
