80% OF GAZA STRIP LIVES OFF OF FOOD AID

“Without It They’re Liable to Starve” says WFP

March 3. Conditions in the Gaza Strip have become so bad that a staggering 80% of the population now relies on food aid, This is the analysis in the Israeli paper Haaretz. It quotes a spokesperson from the World Food Program as saying “without it they are liable to starve” Refugees get food aid from UNRWA. Others desperate Palestinians get help from the World Food Program (WFP).

The WFP offers only flour, salt, cooking oil, chickpeas and tehina. One family reported that the parents diet is hummous and pita every morning, noon and night. The children would be given some chicken or meat once a week.

This malnutrition is entirely man-made. The Israelis have cut off all trade with Gaza and have banned Gazans from working in Israel. They and the U.S. have pressured European countries to cut off humanitarian aid.

HOW DRASTIC DOES IT HAVE TO GET FOR THE WORLD TO WAKE UP ??
