GAZA – On Tuesday, Salama Marouf, the head of the Government Media Office in the Gaza Strip, condemned the Israeli Occupation Forces' (IOF) relentless targeting of individuals striving to provide for their families, exacerbating their plight of hunger. Marouf underscored the deliberate strategy employed by the Israeli occupation to starve Palestinians, particularly in the northern Gaza Strip, where severe famine prevails due to acute shortages in essential goods and aid.اضافة اعلان

In a press statement issued, Marouf recounted the latest incident where the IOF targeted civilians awaiting aid at the Kuwait Roundabout. The attack resulted in casualties, with fatalities reported among those seeking assistance, while dozens sustained injuries, Al-Mamlaka TV reported.

"This new crime raises the number of people killed by the occupation while waiting for aid at Kuwait Junction and Rashid Street to over 400, with 1300 injured," Marouf stated.

He emphasized that such deliberate targeting of aid seekers by the IOF exposes the hypocrisy of any claims to alleviate suffering in the northern Gaza Strip. Marouf asserted that the policy of starvation is a central component of the occupation's agenda, alongside the genocide and ethnic cleansing crimes it perpetrates.

Highlighting the complicity of the international community, Marouf stated that Israel's actions are encouraged by global compliance and the lack of genuine efforts to end the suffering of the Palestinian people. He emphasized that a meaningful resolution would necessitate a ceasefire and the uninterrupted flow of sufficient aid to Gaza.
