Press release on Israeli siege on Gaza amid coronavirus epidemic

24 March, 20

The Israeli occupation continues imposing the blockade on the Gaza Strip even amid the emergency circumstances in Gaza, which is a crime against humanity, especially amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The Israeli occupation is responsible for this siege and the consequences and repercussions of this danger that threatens the lives of Gaza’s residents.    

Hamas calls for an immediate end this blockage and all necessities of Gaza’s population, including medical equipment and supplies needed to fight the novel coronavirus, urging the Palestinian Authority and Mohammad Shtayyeh’s government to end all sanctions imposed on the coastal strip, especially slashing salaries of Gaza’s employees and cutting stipends paid to families of Palestinian martyrs, wounded, and prisoners, and reinforce the steadfastness of the Palestinian people of Gaza in the face of all challenges.
