A COVID-19 outbreak is currently devastating the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. Israel’s brutal siege and illegal occupation have led to a scarcity of medicine, food, and security in the region.
Over 100 cases have been confirmed since March 30, 2020 in Palestinian territories. The declining quality of life and human rights violations due to the Israeli occupation, coupled with the Trump Administration’s withholding of humanitarian aid, are directly impacting resources available for Palestinians to use to defend against the virus.
Senator Elizabeth Warren has bravely sent a letter to the U.S. Department of State, addressed to Secretary Pompeo, to urge the Trump administration to reinstate desperately needed humanitarian aid to Gaza and the West Bank. If we fail to do so, Palestinian lives will be lost.
Let’s collectively tell Senators Kamala Harris and Dianne Feinstein that denying Gaza and the West Bank necessary resources during a pandemic is unacceptable.
