Israel Uses Starvation As ‘War Arm’ - EUThe European Union foreign affairs chief, Josep Borrell, has told the United Nations Security Council that “starvation is being used as a war arm” by Israel.

“This humanitarian crisis is man-made,” he said, noting that “the natural way of providing support through roads is being closed, artificially closed.”

“It is not a flood; it is not an earthquake. It is a man-made humanitarian disaster,” Borrell told reporters at the UN.

Borrell added the EU is increasing its humanitarian assistance. “We have to mobilise the international community, but it is urgent that Israeli authorities stop impeding humanitarian access.”

 

Israel’s war on Gaza has driven most of Gaza’s 2.3 million people from their homes. A quarter of Gaza’s population is starving, according to the United Nations, because they cannot find enough food due to curbs and sieges imposed by Israel.

 

Death toll rises to 31,272

Meanwhile, Palestine’s Health Ministry in Gaza has stated that Israeli strikes in the past 24 hours have killed 88 Palestinians and injured 135 others in the besieged Palestinian enclave.

Israel’s new wave of attacks brings the death toll to 31,272 Palestinians and 73,024 injured since the beginning of Israel’s military onslaught on Gaza on October 7.

The situation continues to deteriorate as Israel has sealed the coastal enclave, leaving Gaza to starve.
