Permalink 71% of Gazans suffer from extreme hunger as Israel wields ‘weapon of starvation’: Rights group

A Geneva-based rights group has found that 71 percent of people in the Gaza Strip suffer from extreme hunger due to Israel’s devastating war on the Palestinian territory and the regime's method of using starvation as a weapon. | The Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor released the figure on Tuesday after it conducted an analytical study of a sample of 1,200 people in Gaza.  Some 98 percent of participants at the study said they eat insufficient amounts of food and 64 percent admitted to eating grass, fruits, immature food, and expired materials to satiate their hunger.  The study was published at a time, when Israel has come under fierce criticism for using starvation of civilians as a method of warfare in violation of international law.
