MP Jamal Al-Khudari, the head of the popular committee against the siege, warned Tuesday that the coming days will witness further escalation and dangers due to the acute shortage of fuel which increases everyday, pointing out that million and a half citizens are living in Gaza under comprehensive siege and in complete paralysis.

In a press conference, Khudari stated that the Israeli occupation is violating international laws and does not heed appeals calling for lifting the siege whether issued by the EU parliament or human rights organizations.

The lawmaker explained that only 30 percent of diesel fuel needs and seven percent of gasoline are allowed into Gaza.

In the same context, the agriculture ministry in Gaza warned that the agricultural and fishing sector is coming to a standstill because of the acute shortage of fuel, adding that this will result in turn in sharp food shortage in Gaza.

Dr. Ibrahim Al-Kudra, an assistant undersecretary at the agriculture ministry, strongly denounced the IOF troops" killing of a 15-year-old Palestinian boy while grazing cattle south of the Nablus city in the West Bank, explaining that the boy was deliberately run over by an Israeli bus, thus becoming the fifth farmer killed by Zionists so far.

Dr. Kudra also deplored the Israeli occupation for uprooting 60 dumums of citrus and almond trees and for destroying water wells and containers in northern Gaza.

For its part, the health ministry in Gaza appealed Tuesday to all humanitarian organizations and the world health organization to move urgently and pressure the IOA to end the fuel crisis and not just alleviate it.

In a press statement received by the PIC, the ministry underlined that this crisis paralyzed all service sectors in Gaza especially the health sector which became threatened with total collapse, pointing out that all ambulances and necessary equipment in hospitals will fully stop if the ministry"s fuel reservoir runs out.
