Essam Youssef: ‘Israel Is Starving Gaza’

The Head of the Popular International Committee to Support the Gaza Strip, Essam Youssef, warned of the humanitarian consequences of the Israeli authorities’ closure of the Karam Abu Salem (Karem Shalom) border crossing on the population of Gaza.

He stated that the danger will affect all neighborhoods in the Gaza Strip.

He stressed that the health sector, which is already reeling from the 12-year siege which Israel has imposed on the Strip, would be unable to survive the latest closure.

He called on the international community to put pressure on the occupation to stop the crimes against humanity that it commits without deterrence.
