Democracy Now: Aid Groups Call for Israel to Lift Blockade of Gaza

Amnesty International, Oxfam, Save the Children and 18 other aid organizations are calling on Israel to unconditionally lift the blockade of Gaza. A new report by the coalition say there has been “little improvement” for people in Gaza since Israel announced it was easing its economic blockade of the territory six months ago. Jeremy Hobbs of Oxfam said: “Israel’s failure to live up to its commitments and the lack of international action to lift the blockade are depriving Palestinians in Gaza of access to clean water, electricity, jobs and a peaceful future.”
