Gaza Blockade's Fifth Anniversary


Israel is committing slow motion genocide.

by Stephen Lendman

Gaza's blockade is illegal. Collective punishment is prohibited. Fourth Geneva's Article 33 states:

"No protected person may be punished for an offence he or she has not personally committed. Collective penalties and likewise all measures of intimidation or of terrorism are prohibited."

"Pillage is prohibited."

"Reprisals against protected persons and their property are prohibited."

Israel spurns all international laws and its own. It commits crimes of war and against humanity with impunity.

Isolating Gaza is a war crime. June 14 marked the blockade's fifth anniversary. Around 50 international human rights and organizations, as well as six UN bodies called for immediately lifting it.
