This call comes in the backdrop of a severe humanitarian conditions, with the people lacking essential goods and commodities such as cooking gas, fuel and food items for more than three weeks now.

Meanwhile, the Israeli military kept Gaza's border crossings closed today , under the pretext of homemade rockets fire from Gaza into nearby Israeli towns. Three weeks ago, the Israeli army broke a five-month-old Egyptian-brokered ceasefire deal, pushing up Gaza-based resistance factions to retaliate with homemade rockets fire.
