Interview with Mr. Mahfouz Kabariti, Coordinator of the Fishermen's Solidarity Campaign in the Gaza StripMédia d'origine:AdallahType de média:Web-texte
Interview conducted by Salah Mohsen, Adalah's Media CoordinatorWhat are the problems faced by fishermen in Gaza? When did these problems start?There has always been Israeli harassment and restrictions on the Gazan fishermen. These problems are linked to the overall political atmosphere, but they have escalated since the first Intifada as well as with the start of the second Intifada in 2000.
In the Oslo Accords, it was agreed to allow the Palestinian fishermen to sail 20 nautical miles, which is equivalent to approximately to 37 km. This distance was never reached because Israel has restricted our movement at sea to a maximum of 12 nautical miles. Following the outbreak of the second Intifada, the distance was reduced to 6–7 nautical miles, and after the recent military offensive, Israel reduced the distance to 3 nautical miles.Étiquettes:

Warnings should go to Israelis who are planning this summer's protests; experts should not warn Israelis about the dangers of burning down of a mosque, but rather, the dangers of their government.Étiquettes:

The hum of the domestic jungle disappears in a flash. Fridges and televisions shut off instantly and the streets fall eerily dark. Gaza rarely falls silent naturally, but during the nightly blackouts, it becomes soundless – at least temporarily. The silence is invariably broken by an overhead F-16, a drone or – as has occurred several times in the last month – an airstrike.
Since February, Palestinians in Gaza have been experiencing the worst fuel crisis to hit the territory in living memory. In April, Gaza’s only electricity plant shut down three of their four generators. Last week, a vital fuel delivery from Qatar was held up for several days. Meanwhile the electricity plant’s final generator puttered out of service. At its peak, it could only supply a maximum four hours of electricity a day.
Although Gaza has received the long-awaited fuel delivery, extensive blackouts still grip the territory and many fear that the damage has already been done. Worst hit by the crisis are Gaza’s local industries. Although they managed to survive a siege, workers now fear continuing shortages may end what little is left of Gaza’s self-sufficiency.Étiquettes:

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Fifty international charities and UN agencies called Thursday on Israel to lift its years-long blockade of the Gaza Strip.
Marking the fifth anniversary of the siege, the organizations -- among them Amnesty International, Médecins du Monde, Oxfam, and Save the Children -- joined agencies like the World Health Organization, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights UNICEF and four other UN agencies in urging Israel to lift the siege "now."
"For over five years in Gaza, more than 1.6 million people have been under blockade in violation of international law. More than half of these people are children. We the undersigned say with one voice: 'end the blockade now,'" the petition said.Étiquettes:
