POC Team: Gaza Strip face humanitarian catastrophe from corona virus

Palestine, 1 April, 2020.( The inside Palestine) Josh Hammer, an American lawyer, is claiming that “Israel” sends amounts of humanitarian aid to Gaza; retweeting Senator Bernie Sanders’ tweet in which he speaks out against Israel’s blockade and calls for immediate medical relief for over two million Palestinians as they battle Covid-19 while living under Israeli occupation and blockade.

Palestinian activists from “Palestine online community” criticize the American lawyer’s racist tweet by showing that without help, Gaza residents will face an unfathomable disaster, and what is needed to prevent this scenario is massive aid from “Israel” and from the World Health Organization to help stem the spread of the virus and treat those infected with it. In these moments, when people’s lives are on the line, this isn’t just Israel’s obligation under international law and the law of occupation, it is the humane, moral thing to do.

Here are some of their comments:

 

*It is worth mentioning that “Palestine online community” is a gathering of pro-Palestine activists from different countries around the world. They are known in monitoring the Israeli violations and hate-speech against the Palestinians, as they try to spread their voice on social media to raise awareness about the importance of supporting the just cause of Palestine
