Arab/Israeli conflict between Syria, Palestine & Israel

This is an Israeli imposed famine
French minister raises possibility of imposing sanctions on Israel to get more aid into Gaza France’s foreign minister, Stéphane Séjourné, has suggested that the international community should pressure Israel by potentially imposing sanctions to force it to allow more aid into Gaza. “There must be levers of influence and there are multiple levers, going up to sanctions to let humanitarian aid cross checkpoints,” he was quoted by Al Jazeera as having told French outlets RFI radio and France 24. “France was one of the first countries to propose European Union sanctions on Israeli settlers who are committing acts of violence in the West Bank. We will continue if needed to obtain the opening of humanitarian aid,” he added. The UN’s human rights chief, Volker Turk, said last month that Israel’s restrictions on humanitarian aid for Gaza may amount to a starvation tactic that could be a war crime. Famine is “projected and imminent” in the northern half of Gaza, a UN-backed report said last month, and according to Oxfam the number of people facing “catastrophic levels” of hunger has nearly doubled since December. Israel denies blocking aid, saying shortages are a result of logistics failures by humanitarian organisations or Hamas diverting supplies.
