Continuing Curfew Creates Humanitarian Disaster

Continuing Curfew Creates Humanitarian Disaster




July 16, 2002 - The Union of Palestinian Medical Relief Committees




For nearly a month, two million residents of the West Bank have been under almost constant curfew. This deliberate policy by the Israeli government has created a humanitarian disaster throughout the West Bank. Hospitals, schools, universities as well as civil and governmental institutions have been completely paralyzed. Furthermore, the Israeli-imposed curfew has decimated the economy leaving a considerable percentage of Palestinians under the poverty line and nearing levels of starvation.




The Israeli government's curfews are intended to, and have succeeded in
destroying the socio-economic infrastructure of Palestine. Its collective
punishment measures represent a severe violation of international law, and
have no justification as security measures. As such, we are astounded and
deeply concerned by the weak response of the international community in
denouncing Israel's creation of this ever-increasing humanitarian crisis.




THIS IS AN URGENT CALL FOR ALL HUMANITARIAN ORGANIZATIONS WORLWIDE TO INTERVENE IMMEDIATELY
