After twenty seven days of ongoing Israeli offensive against Gaza, the situation has become unbearable. Close to half a million people (25% of Gaza strip population) are now displaced and are living either in schools, hospitals, with relatives or even in the streets. They don’t have life’s minimum basic necessities.

Clean water has become so hard to obtain in light of the complete absence of electricity, which is preventing pumping water to people’s houses. Gaza’s municipalities have also warned of an imminent environmental catastrophe if the situation does not improve soon as all water treatment plants would shut off and stop operating.

The Israeli attacks against health facilities are unprecedented. A new Israeli massacre that was committed against civilians in Rafah on Friday left more than sixty people dead in that city alone and hundreds of others wounded. The one and only hospital working in Rafah, Abu Yousef Alnajjar hospital, was ordered by the Israeli army to evacuate. Health officials spoke of having to put dead bodies in vegetable coolers, while the wounded were left to bleed in the street as there was no room for them to be treated.

The death toll continues to rise. As of today, 1650 people have been killed and nearly 9000 injured.
