Palestinian Ambassador to U.K.: Gaza Is ‘Being Starved’
Husam Zomlot, the Palestinian Ambassador to the U.K., said in a briefing in London on Tuesday that without an immediate ceasefire there is no hope to end what he described as an apocalyptic situation in Gaza.
Gaza’s entire population of 2.3 million is being starved. Infectious diseases brought about by contaminated water, a lack of hygiene and overcrowding is already becoming a pandemic. Without an immediate cease-fire, there is no hope — immediate, comprehensive, permanent. Without that immediate cease-fire, we see no hope of addressing the apocalyptic situation in Gaza. In parallel to demanding an immediate, permanent cease-fire, there has to be a massive international humanitarian efforts to address Gaza’s acute needs. Alongside the huge, huge, humongous reconstruction efforts to make the area livable again.
