Gaza is now a 'famine-stricken zone' says Palestinian human rights organisations

Palestinian NGOs and professional unions declared that the besiged Gaza Strip is now a "famine-stricken zone."

The new conference was held in Ramallah by Amjad Shawa, director of the Palestinian NGOs Network (PNGO) in Deir el-Balah.

Shawa added that raw sewege has overflowed amongst tents where people are sheltering resulting in people going without drinking water 

The situation is detiroiorating by the minute said Shawa made worse by the “ruthless, merciless bombardment by the Israeli warplanes”.

Muhammad Eida, a Palestinian NGO director added that Gaza is now  a "famine-stricken zone as the Israeli genocidal war enters the eighth month”.

“Many dead bodies are still trapped underneath the ruins,” he says, adding that others are “still strewn on the roads”.

“It is Israel’s goal to starve the population to force them out of Gaza Strip” he continues.
