OCHA calls for immediate lifting of Gaza blockade

No Comments

The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) stressed in a report issued Thursday that the blockade on Gaza should be fully lifted in line with UN Security Council Resolution 1860.

The report considered the situation in the Gaza Strip as “catastrophic” after 15 years of Israeli siege, saying that “long-standing access restrictions imposed by the Israeli authorities have undermined Gaza’s economy, resulting in high unemployment, food insecurity and aid dependency.”
