The situation in Gaza
The situation in Gaza is catastrophic, with innocent civilians facing dire humanitarian crises. Ongoing Israeli airstrikes and a complete blockade of essential resources such as food, water, fuel, electricity, and medical supplies have left tens of thousands in desperate need. Gaza serves as a painful reminder to all South Africans of our history of oppression and injustice.
Tragically, this conflict has claimed the lives of over 8,525 people, including 3,542 children and 2,187 women, and has left at least 21,000 wounded. The current displacement caused by this violence has forced half of the population, 1.3 million people, to desperately seek safety and shelter from relentless airstrikes, leaving nowhere truly safe. Additionally, about 1,800 people, including at least 1,000 children, have been reported missing and are presumed to be trapped or dead under the rubble, awaiting rescue or recovery.
More than 183,000 homes and housing units have been either damaged or destroyed, and critical education and healthcare facilities have been deliberately targeted. These actions not only defy international law but also constitute clear war crimes. The scale of suffering in Gaza is completely unacceptable, and it is our collective duty to raise our voices and stand against such injustice. Let us stand together and support our brothers and sisters in Gaza.
