Brutal attacks in the Gaza Strip have killed 14,000 and injured more than 35,000. Over one million residents of Gaza have been forced to flee their homes. This is a worrying escalation in violence which will only result in the loss of lives and destruction of livelihood.
Many Palestinians and humanitarian organisations continue to describe Gaza as the world’s largest open-air prison, a rigidly controlled strip of land with little opportunity for escape or growth.
One third of Palestinians live below the poverty line, and after more than 15 years of blockade and violence the 2 million residents of Gaza have been plunged into abject poverty. 80% of the population rely on aid to simply survive. With food, medication, water and electricity supplies at an all-time low.
