Popular Front of India Chairman O M A Salam has called on the international community to interfere to stop ongoing Israeli bombing on Gaza.
For the past seven days Israeli warplanes have bombed various parts of Gaza Strip making already pathetic situation there even worse. More than two million people of Gaza Strip have been suffering due to Israeli wars and the blockade that is been imposed on the strip has deprived the people of vital commodities including food, fuel, and medicine. Many international humanitarian activists have called the Strip an open jail. Israel has now banned fuel imports into Gaza on August 12 creating serious crisis to power supply in the strip. Its effect will not be limited to the everyday lives of people there but also the vital services like healthcare. The ban on fishing off the cost of Gaza is also going to affect poor people. The world should not just remain mute spectators while another systematic and collective punishment of a population happens in front of them. Popular Front Chairman stated that only strongest actions including UN sanctions would only put an end to Israeli bombings and strangulation of Gaza.
