After Cutting Off Water and Electricity and Calling for Evacuation of Residential Areas, Israeli Occupation Collectively Punishes Gaza Strip Population

The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR) warns against the rapid deterioration of the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip, especially after Israeli officials’ statements to broaden the scope of attacks and their calls upon thousands of residents across the Gaza Strip to evacuate their houses amid airstrikes targeting residential towers and civilian houses.

UNRWA has declared receipt of 20,000 persons in 44 of its schools across the Gaza Strip, except Khan Yunis. According to UNRWA, only 28 schools have been equipped to be used as shelters in emergencies while the rest 16 have not. Meanwhile, three UNRWA schools sustained partial damage due to the Israeli airstrike. As a result of the ongoing aggression, UNRWA has announced that the distribution of foodstuffs is on hold until further notice.

PCHR condemns the Israeli collective punishment policy and inhumane and illegal reprisals against the civilian population in the Gaza Strip following the decision of the Israeli Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, Yisrael Katz, to stop electricity supplies to the Gaza Strip. Moreover, the Israeli companies halted water supplies to the Gaza Strip, depriving the population of 50% of their water needs. This policy has inflicted catastrophic repercussions on all service and health sectors, which already suffer from continuous and serious deterioration due to 17 years of closure. Therefore, this violates all international conventions, particularly Article (33) of the Fourth Geneva Convention.
