The Palestinian Hamas resistance movement has slammed Israel for the severe fuel and electricity shortage in the Gaza Strip, calling on Egypt to help solve the problem in the impoverished coastal sliver.

“Israel is directly responsible for the crisis of energy shortage,” Mohamed Awad, Hamas’ foreign minister, told a news conference in the Gaza City on Thursday.

“The crisis must end soon and all the parties are called to help resolve it,” he added.

Meanwhile, a senior Hamas leader accused both Israel and the Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority of being behind Gaza’s energy crisis.

“Israel and the Palestinian Authority are 100 percent responsible for the ongoing crisis and it is a conspiracy to topple the Hamas rule in the Gaza Strip,” Mohammed al-Zahar said.

He called on Egypt “to help the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip to resolve the crisis.”

Al-Zahar added, “We know that Egypt is passing through its own fuel crisis, but Egypt has to help us end our humanitarian crisis.”

Gaza’s sole electricity-generating plant stopped working in late February after Egypt blocked the flow of diesel fuel through underground tunnels into the besieged territory.

Some residents of the coastal enclave held demonstrations in front of the Rafah crossing to protest Egypt’s move in blocking fuel shipments.

Gazans have been struggling with the blackouts under Israel’s tight blockade, which has caused a severe decline in the standard of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty in the enclave.

The full-scale land, aerial, and naval siege, which was imposed by Israel on the territory in 2007, has turned the Gaza Strip into the world’s largest open-air prison.

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.
