DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:06 A.M.)- It was reported by the World Health Organistation last Friday that the Israeli regime had blocked or purposely delayed the permits applied for by Gaza medical patients (in the month of July) frequently, to the extent that 2 in 5 were not getting to their treatment.

The Secretary General of the United Nations Security Council ‘Antonio Guterres’ had stated late last month -after his visit to the 11 year illegally besieged Gaza Strip – that the situation there is a “dramatic humanitarian crisis”, also calling on Israel to align itself with international law and end the blockade.

Sickness is on the rise in Gaza, this is due to the pollution of the sea and sewerage that often flows into the streets because of the limited electricity available to pump the waste produced by Gaza’s two million residents, living in the most densely populated concentration of land mass on earth.

Not only have Israel been denying permits for medical patients – causing the deaths of several children (and others) this year – they are actively taking steps to make the strip more and more unbearable on top of what it already is, this is done by the likes of depriving Gaza of adequate electricity.

It also doesn’t look like Israel are planning on ending the siege like the UN Secretary General commanded. The Israeli regime announced in late July that they are going ahead with a two-year underground wall construction project.
