“The Australian Federation of Islamic Councils (AFIC) echoes and amplifies the distressing reports from Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), a highly respected NGO operating in Gaza, which has firsthand knowledge of the crisis,” stated Dr. Rateb Jneid, President of AFIC.

“The crisis in Gaza has reached catastrophic proportions. The siege imposed by the Israeli government, including the withholding of food, water, fuel and electricity is outrageous and inhuman. It is a collective punishment, prohibited under international humanitarian law, and may constitute a war crime.”
