Human rights group: The crisis of fuel in Gaza paralyzed civilian life

[ PIC 21/03/2012 – 01:12 PM ]

GAZA, (PIC)– The Palestinian center for human rights said the crisis of fuel and electricity has paralyzed the daily life in the besieged Gaza Strip and made the lives of citizens much worse than before.

“The towns of Gaza have become like ghost towns because of the power outages that happen most of the day and night, and the frequent lack of drinking water in homes because there is no electric power to pump water to the apartments in tall buildings,” the center highlighted in a report on Tuesday.

“Furthermore, there are the risks resulting from the failure to dispose of sewage accumulating in waste basins or to treat it before pumping it into the sea, which endangers the marine life and the health of beach visitors in Gaza,” it added.

The center also said that the failure to provide vehicles in Gaza with fuel caused a transportation crisis and made students, employees and many citizens unable to reach their destinations properly.

In a related context, the Palestinian government in Gaza accused influential parties from the Fatah-controlled Palestinian authority of being behind the European union’s decision to stop funding the electricity service in Gaza.

The government stated in a press release that a group of Fatah-PA leaders asked the European union not to fund the electricity service in Gaza.

The government affirmed that it decided to address the fuel and power crisis as much as it could through reducing the amount of fuel allocated for use by all its officials by half and to ban the use of ministerial vehicles from three o’clock in the evening every day until the current crisis is resolved.

The government also appealed to Egypt to assume its historical responsibilities towards Gaza and help it to overcome its power crisis.

Israel is not looking for Peace



Martyred By Israeli Occupation Attacks

انّا للہ و انّا الیه راجعون

May Allah Subhana wa Ta’ ala grant the Shuhada Jannatul Firdaus, and ease it for their families, loved ones and anyone around them. Allahumma Ameen ya Rabbil Alameen. ‘ Inna Lillahi wa ‘ Inna ‘ Ilayhi Raji’un, Allahu Akbar


* The list of shuhada does not display, the numerous victims of the zionist occupation which are undocumented by media. Nor it displays the victims of the “silent onslaught” due to restrictions of movement, ability to go to hospitals for treatment or life saving surgery, due to lack of medication because of the blockades and so on. For example: The Slow Motion Genocide by the Siege on Gaza only, killed 600 patients since Gaza got under Israeli Siege.

Neither does this list, display the avoidable mortality. A clear and statistical factual evidence, about the number of deaths due to indecent ruling by occupation forces. For even an occupier has obligations under International Laws, Geneva Convention and the Hague regulations, which it is neglecting. These circumstances, together with deliberate policies of the occupier to neglect and even deny every basic human right, severes avoidable mortality which is totally silenced by media or reporting organisations. While in the Holocaust, 1 on 6 Jewish people directly died of deliberate neglect, so if we believe the facts over 1 million due to avoidable mortality, neither should these same circumstances be ignores which are ongoing in Palestine. For this report displays a avoidable morality of at least 0,5 million Palestinians.

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all.
