Gaza: Banned list an attempt to mislead

Source: Al Mezan Center for Human Rights

Mr. Issam Younis, the Director of Al Mezan Center for Human Rights, condemned the ongoing Israeli siege imposed on the Gaza Strip.

Mr. Younis emphasized that replacing the allowed list of items by banned list of items is a clear attempt to mislead the international demands which call for the necessity to end the siege imposed on the Gaza Strip.

Younis asserted that Israel had to stop the war crime represented by the collective punishment of the population of the Gaza Strip. The ongoing siege deprived Palestinians of their rights to free movement and travel and it also limited Palestinians freedom to export and import goods. This keeps the human rights situations deteriorated.
