Palestinian rights group warns of humanitarian disaster in Gaza

Nov. 20, 2008 2:20 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 20, 2008 2:20 P.M.)
Gaza - Ma'an - The Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) warned in a report on Thursday that the Gaza Strip is facing "disaster" as a result of the "endless siege."

PCHR also blamed Israel for the ongoing clashes in Gaza. According to the center's weekly report, Israeli troops made 30 incursions into the West Bank and Gaza, where 44 Palestinians were seized. Among them were two children from the West Bank, 15 fisherman off the coast of Gaza and three solidarity activists onboard a ship, the center claimed.

PCHR also condemned Israel's demolition of houses and lands "for the sake of the separation wall" in the West Bank. This month, soldiers took over large swaths of land in Hebron and allowed settlers to attack Palestinians, the Palestinian human rights group alleged on Thursday.
