Gaza Strip (The Inside Palestine)- Over 300,000 workers living in the Gaza Strip are unemployed because of the ongoing Israeli siege and deterioration of the economic situation, a Palestinian group said.
Marking the International Labour Day, May 1, the head of the Popular Committee to End Gaza’s Siege, Jamal al-Hudari, said in a statement that the international community ignores the humanitarian situation of more than 2 million Palestinians living in the besieged Gaza Strip.
He said that the 12-year air, sea, and land blockade imposed by Israel on the Gaza Strip, along with COVID-19 measures, worses the living conditions of the Paleatinian workers, especially during the holy month of Ramadan.
He called for international assistance through trade unions for workers in Palestine, especially the Gaza Strip.
“In the Labour Day, we salute the Palestinian workers for their patience and steadfastness,” he concluded.
The Gaza Strip is frequently referred to as one of the most densely populated areas in the world and has suffered under a strict Israeli siege since 2007.
