"PCAS sent a message to the whole free world to draw the attention about Israeli violations of Human Rights laws against innocent civilians in Gaza. The letter was sent to EU ministers and officials, UN Members, Human rights associations around the world.
Content of sent letter:
Since the start of tight siege imposed on Gaza strip; Gazans encountered problematic situation in all life aspects. Chain of outcomes of siege appeared strongly in the last few days, especially in power sector.
The Popular Committee Against Siege (PCAS), would like to pay your attention toward the fuel crisis. More than 50 % of the power supply in Gaza is not available vowing of many humanitarian crisis. Israel and part of it’s siege, decreased severely the devoted fuel supplies to Gaza power station.
Accordingly, we predict that this crisis will hit all life aspects in Gaza strip as follows:
*Hospitals and health centers are severely impacted.
*Water wells reduced the pumped drinking water.
*Waste water treatment plants are partially off.
* Schools and educational institutions will not be able to run under full capacity.
*About 65% of Gaza residents will be negatively affected.
Thus, we request your prompt intervention and actions to prevent more deteriorations of the Palestinians lives in the Gaza strip.
