De facto government condemns "Israeli terror" in Gaza Strip

Nov. 14, 2008 7:03 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 14, 2008 7:03 P.M.)
Gaza - Ma'an - The de facto government in Gaza on Friday called on Egyptian mediators to immediately intervene in the "deterioration of the human, health and living situation" in the Gaza Strip.

A de facto government media office warned in a statement of "the grave deterioration of the situation in Gaza due to the closure of the crossings."

"The closure of the crossings (is) preventing the pumping of fuel into Gaza for the 10th day," it added.

"Israeli forces are intentionally increasing the sufferings of the Palestinians in Gaza through continued closure of the crossings, stopping fuel shipments and cutting off electricity," media spokesperson Alaa Al-Bata said on Friday.

"The residents of Gaza face a slow death every day due to the Israeli procedures," he added.

Al-Bata also demanded that the international community "urgently act to save the Gazan residents from Israeli terror."

He also called on other Arab and Islamic countries to "support the Palestinians and empower (them) to remain steadfast in the face of these immoral Israeli practices."
