DAMASCUS, SYRIA (12:00 A.M)- Gaza officials have just declared a state of emergency as the economy reaches the brink of complete collapse.

Residents of the Gaza Strip now face the unprecedented consequences of Israel’s – eleven year – ongoing Seige. Despite the fact that the Israeli state is obliged by international law, to maintain a sound liveable condition for the residents it besieges, it has acted to purposefully strangle the civilian population of Gaza.

The Mayor of Gaza, Nizar Hejazi, said at a news conference; “Much of the financial aid has been cut, which has halted basic services linked to fuel and sanitation…”

Nizar Hejazi was referring to the recent cuts from ‘UNRWA’, a department of the United Nations set up for specifically dealing with Palestinian refugees.

Gaza now faces an unemployment rate above 50%, whilst more than 80% of the population are identified as living in poverty.

Gaza’s sewerage system has now become completely over-run and has forced officials to announce that raw untreated sewerage will all now be, directly, pumped into the sea.

Crime has also increased in Gaza due to the abject poverty, 97% of the water is undrinkable, the sole power plant in Gaza cannot operate due to lack of fuel and electricity is also only available between 2-6 hours per day.

The United Nations Security Council yesterday addressed the humanitarian crisis, but there is yet to be any action taken for the desperate population of the Gaza Strip.

It is so easy to blame Israel for the plight of Gaza but it is their elected terrorist organization Hamas that has bled Gaza dry. They have squandered their money on rockets and tunnels, brought them 3 wars with Israel all of which they lost. Hamas is not into rebuilding the infrastructure of Gaza or providing basic essentials. Now they can’t pay the bills and are looking for he PA to take over control so they can pay the bills. The PA is not falling into that trap unless they have control of the military. Hamas is only there for… Read more »

Sounds like a Muslim Brotherhood fanboy. Just another praising global jihad, global caliphate and the world to fall back to barbarianism! MB = Hamas, AKP, al-Qaeda, ISIS, Fatah, al-Mourabitoun, Boko-Haram, Ansar-Dine, Shebabs, Talebans, etc, etc! The cockroaches that are doing s**t in Syria are the same that shoot rockets on Israel! Hassan al-Banna translated Mein Kampf in Arab and MB were allied with the Nazis, at the point where Arafat’s uncle became a Waffen SS general… Truth hurts, baby! Everytime a terrorist is shot, we can only applaud! If you want to back a resistance group attacking a terrorist state… Read more »

This is how it ends when you side with shitlamists like Hamas… Well, maybe Bibi should borrow the green buses of shame from Assad. Or maybe green boats, in order to transport Hamas to their main sponsors’ shores : Turkey, Qatar and Iran? NEVERTHELESS : hadn’ Hamas dilapidated hundreds of millions of UN-provided money into digging tunnels to smuggle weapons and terrorists and tens of thousands rockets, sometimes firing 4000 in a few weeks time, well, Gaza would have a fully working sanitation system, working energy systems and would leave in peace! But NO h**l NO! Hamas sees Gaza as… Read more »
