Israeli forces kill 5 as Gaza teeters on brink of war | The Electronic Intifada

“When electricity has been cut to five hours a day, when safe drinking water has almost disappeared, and when its economy is cratering before our eyes, then the state of unlivability is upon us, and the international community must insist that all parties, and particularly Israel, the occupying power, bring an immediate end to this humanitarian disaster.”

Lynk, who is prevented by Israel from accessing the occupied Palestinian territories, said that the “international community … has to insist” that the 11-year air, sea and land blockade on Gaza come to an end.

Even the IDF have warned the Israeli Minister
