The Chairman of the Islamic Society in Gaza, Yakup Suleiman, on Friday said that Israel's latest bomb attacks on Gaza were designed to cause fear among the residents of Gaza.
Speaking to the Anadolu Agency (AA), Yakup Suleiman stressed that following Israel's air attacks on two locations of Gaza recently, living conditions in Gaza got worse enormously.
"Bombing by the Israeli army continues. Israelis conduct their bombing activities at night time when individuals are in their homes. They aim to cause fear among the residents, especially among the children. The Israeli army targets homes, government buildings, mosques and industrial regions where poor humans make living," Suleiman stressed.
"We continue to struggle against epidemics. The military blockade of Gaza led to an increasing amount of health problems. Treatment of those wounded and ill get delayed due to the blockade," Suleiman noted.
"We want to repair the homes of our brothers and sisters after they got damaged in Israeli bombings. We need to provide shelter to our brothers and sisters before winter arrives," Suleiman stated.
"The tyranny applied on the Palestinians is against human rights, international laws and UN resolutions. This reality should not be forgotten and the people of Palestine should not be left alone," Suleiman also said.
In a recent report, the United Nations' most comprehensive report on the Palestinian enclave said on Monday Gaza will no longer be "liveable" by 2020 unless urgent action is taken to improve water supply, power, health, and schooling.
Israel, that imposes siege on Gaza since 1997, staged a three-week war in January 2009, devastating infrastructure, killing up to 1500 people.Last Mod: 31 Ağustos 2012, 12:38
