PALESTINE EMERGENCY AID – GAZA, PALESTINE

Gaza is completely sealed off from the rest of the world by Israel’s apartheid wall and subjected to a debilitating siege for decades. Israel is carpet bombing Gaza. It has imposed a full blockade on Gaza, with no water, electricity, food or medicine entering the Strip. Telecommunications infrastructure has been bombarded, effectively cutting off Palestinians in Gaza from the rest of the world. Meanwhile, the West Bank has been completely blocked – checkpoints closed all across, effectively paralyzing the whole territory. Israeli soldiers are shooting Palestinians and encouraging settlers to do so as well. The Palestinians have been held hostage by Israel for decades and they have been prisoners in their land for generations.

At least 26,637 people have been killed and 65,387 wounded in Israeli attacks on Gaza since October 7. More than 10,000 are children. The Israeli offensive has left 85% of Gaza’s population internally displaced amid acute shortages of food, clean water, and medicine, while 60% of the enclave’s infrastructure was damaged or destroyed,
