  • DW News published this video item, entitled “Israeli airstrikes fuel growing humanitarian crisis in Gaza | DW News” – below is their description.

    Tensions over Israel’s bombardment of Gaza are boiling over into the other Palestinian territories — the occupied West Bank, East Jerusalem, as well as in Israeli towns with mixed populations. In many places, Palestinian demonstrators have clashed with Israeli police.It’s the largest show of Palestinian anger since the onset of hostilities between Israel and Gaza militants last week. The frustration comes amid growing international appeals for an end to the fighting, which have so far gone unheeded.

    The streets of Hebron – full of Palestinian protesters – part of a ‘day of anger’ that saw strikes and demonstrations in Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank. A show of Palestinian unity – shared outrage over the death toll in Gaza and Israeli policy toward the occupied territories. The death toll rose again on both sides on Tuesday. On the Israeli side – rockets from Gaza struck a house used by guest workers in the Israeli town of Eshdod, killing two Thai nationals. The sound of explosions is constant in Israeli areas within the rockets’ range. The Iron Dome anti-missile system stops most – but not all.

    Israeli airstrikes on Gaza continued – fueling a humanitarian crisis.

    Most of the dead here are civilians – and now thousands of Gazans are cut off from clean water and have no access to medicines. Hospitals, already struggling with the COVID-19 pandemic, are stretched to their limits. Israel says it is targeting leaders of the militant Hamas movement that governs Gaza – and a system of tunnels Israel says are used to move weapons.

    As global calls mount for an end to the bloodshed, the White House says President Biden told Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu in a phone call that he supported a ceasefire – but stopped short of calling for one. Meanwhile Netanyahu has said Israel will not stop airstrikes until Hamas ‘pays a price’ – a price Gazans are already paying.
