Gaza situation 'worst since 1967'

Gaza's humanitarian situation is the worst since 1967 when Israel occupied it, says a coalition of UK-based human rights and development groups.

They include Amnesty International, Save the Children, Cafod, Care International and Christian Aid.

They criticise Israel's blockade on Gaza as illegal collective punishment which fails to deliver security.

Israel says its military action and other measures are lawful and needed to stop rocket attacks from Gaza.

The groups' report, Gaza Strip: A Humanitarian Implosion, says the blockade has dramatically worsened levels of poverty and unemployment, and has led to deterioration in education and health services.

Germans also suffered in 1945.

That's what they get for starting their war.

If it was Britain or the US getting bombed, there wouldn't be a question. The attackers would have been stopped, and their country would be under occupation. But because it's Israel, we criticize them and say that they need to talk with Hamas? Ridiculous. If Hamas was going to talk, they would have done so at the numerous attempted peace conferences. They haven't, they won't. Israel is taking the only option left to her. She is the victim, not Palestine.
