Crisis in Gaza
Without a peace deal based on international law, the US announcement to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move its embassy to the city is a provocative and dangerous move for both Palestinians and Israelis, Oxfam said today.
On the eve of the latest reconciliation talks in Cairo between Fatah and the Gaza authorities, Oxfam is calling for an end to the restrictions imposed by Palestinian leaders earlier this year, which have seen electricity supplies in Gaza plummet - as well as an end to Israel’s decade-long blockade.
The impact of the Gaza electricity crisis on people’s access to basic services is as bad as the aftermath of the 2014 war.
Oxfam calls upon European governments to live up to their commitments and to start protesting and requesting compensation for the destruction by Israeli authorities of Palestinian homes and the confiscation of humanitarian aid in the West Bank.
