On 13.06.2007 Israel sealed off the borders to Gaza completely. It retains full control over all entrances and exits (land, air, sea). It also controls the amount of food, medical supplies, fuel, in addition to everything else to enter Gaza. Since then, Israel had only allowed a very limited amount of essentials to enter the Strip, which is no way near enough to cover the needs of the one and a half million Palestinians held as hostages by the Zionist entity. According to various international and human rights organizations these one and a half million Palestinians suffer from a sharp shortage of food, medical supplies and fuel. The situation got worse with the Israeli war on Gaza last year during which the Israeli army attacked the besieged unarmed civilian population of Gaza and committed war crimes that resulted in the murder of over 1400 Palestinians and wounding thousands, many of whom are handicapped for life. Also Patients, especially cancer & kidney patients, need permits to get the necessary treatment outside the Gaza Strip, but Israel often refuses the patients such permits. Till today, 368 Palestinians have died as a direct result of the Israeli siege. The latest victim being Maisara Husam Mousa, 3 yers old, who died on 11.01.2010.

Israel has also limited shipments of vital supplies to Gaza, including medicine and medical equipment, making Gaza hospitals underequipped and not in a position to handle severe cases. Many essential drugs and medical supplies have run out, and many patients have had their treatment stopped because of the lack of needed medicines. Also, the scarcity of fuel affects the functioning of intensive care units, refrigerators and other medical equipments. Many severe cases can only be treated outside the Strip, for which patients are forced to apply to the Israeli army for a travel permit. Sometimes families apply several times for permits with no success. Human rights organizations report that Palestinian patients are summoned to the Erez crossing and are interrogated by Israeli security services who blackmail them by demanding information on their relatives, neighbours and acquaintances in return for the much needed permits. Upon refusal, many are prevented from leaving Gaza. Other patients were arrested after being summoned to Erez to get their permits. Some patients who were lucky enough o get the needed permits were turned back or delayed at the crossing and died.

The Zionist entity, as primary perpetrator, together with its accomplices in crime: the government of Egypt and the PNA, are holding one and a half million Palestinians as hostages. They are collectively responsible for besieging the residents of Gaza and should be tried for the murder of every single Palestinian who dies due to this on-going inhumane and criminal siege, which together with all the other Zionist war crimes amounts to yet another war crime against the Palestinian people and against humanity.

To date, 368 Palestinian patients have died due to the siege, including 113 children. During one single month, March 2009, 21 Palestinian patients died including 5 children and 6 women. On 08.08.08, 6 patients died within 24 hours due to the siege on Gaza. The Palestinian Ministry of Health lists some 400 patients who died as a result of the Israeli siege on Gaza.
