The Popular Committee Against the Siege appealed to UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, to solve the deteriorating humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip, which has been under Israeli blockade since 2006, Days of Palestine reported.

“The situation in the Gaza Strip entails urgent and decisive intervention from the UN Secretary-General to pressure the occupation to lift the siege,” head of the Committee, Jamal al-Khudari said in a statement, on Saturday, adding that “Ending the Israeli blockade will contribute to saving the worsening humanitarian situation in Gaza.”

He stressed that “the blockade is immoral and inhuman, and contradicts all principles of the international law, the Fourth Geneva Convention and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”
