The campaign said, in a press release: The siege imposed by the Israeli occupation on the Gaza Strip was and still is an act of aggression with the rank of a crime against humanity, and a look at the statistics and data indicating the decline in the indicators of life in Gaza suffices, so we know that the occupation has turned this small spot of Palestine land to a closed prison, in which the most basic elements of a safe life are lacking, financially and morally.
She added: “Today, the threat of the spread of the new Corona virus is an additional factor, adding to the brutality of the blockade, which prey on the 2 million people who live in the Gaza Strip. The siege and Corona are epidemics that are participating today in killing the residents of the Gaza Strip, and this holds the institutions of the international community responsible for serious work to raise The unjust Israeli siege on Gaza.
The institutions participating in the international humanitarian campaign to lift the siege on Gaza (blockade B) called on all institutions of the international community, the free, honorable, social media activists and individuals carrying the banner of truth and justice, to mobilize efforts and participate in the widest possible range in the international humanitarian campaign to lift the siege on Gaza # Siege_ epidemic.
