Gaza a disaster area due to Israeli war

Ramallah, Jul 2 (Prensa Latina) The Gaza Strip Chamber of Commerce called on Tuesday to declare that territory a disaster area in light of the destruction and humanitarian crisis Israel has caused during 270 days of continued attacks.

Ayed Abu Ramadan, president of the Central Emergency Committee of that institution, told reporters that this coastal enclave, especially the northern territory, is not habitable for human life.

We urge the world to intervene quickly to prevent Gazans from dying of starvation and the spread of disease and epidemics, Abu Ramadan stated.

The official also called on the United Nations and the Palestinian Government to declare Gaza a famine-stricken area due to famine, environmental pollution, and the spread of diseases.

Gaza is suffering from severe food shortages and a continuous decline in nutritional levels, especially among women and children, he stressed.

Abu Ramadan criticized the Israeli attacks and blockade, which prevent the entry of sufficient essential goods.

He accused Israel of bombing all crops, industrial facilities, and commercial markets “in a bid to destroy all aspects of life and turn the Gaza Strip into an uninhabitable area.

This week, the Palestinian Red Crescent Society warned that the humanitarian situation in Gaza was catastrophic.
