100 Days of Unimaginable Horror in Gaza
After nearly 100 days of intense bombing and siege, people in Gaza are suffering unimaginable horror.
Waseem Ahmad, CEO of Islamic Relief Worldwide, says:
“Israel’s ongoing attack and siege has brought a level of suffering that is almost impossible to comprehend.
“We have witnessed 100 days of civilians being killed at the fastest rate this century.
“100 days of utter destruction, with much of Gaza now turned to rubble, 60% of homes damaged or destroyed, and hospitals and schools bombed.
“100 days of people being starved and wilfully denied food, medicine and other vital aid, leaving Gaza on the verge of a man-made famine.
“100 days of international law being violated and ignored. 100 days of Palestinians being forcibly displaced, with the UN warning there is a risk of forced expulsion and ethnic cleansing.
“There are no excuses or justification for this massacre, which continues in full sight of world leaders who have repeatedly failed to act.
“Every day this goes on brings more death and suffering. Most of those killed are civilians, including more than 10,000 children – that’s 100 children killed every single day.
“This must not be allowed to continue a single day longer. There must be an immediate ceasefire and an end to Israel’s siege.”
