Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi squarely pointed the finger at the Israeli Occupation for the crisis in the Gaza Strip.

Speaking at the “Call for Action: Urgent Humanitarian Response for Gaza” conference on Tuesday, Al-Sisi attributed the current situation in Gaza solely to the occupation. He characterized it as a widespread campaign of starvation imposed on the entire strip.

Al-Sisi stressed the urgency of forcing the occupation to lift the blockade and facilitate the entry of aid into Gaza, as well as an immediate and comprehensive ceasefire.

The “Call for Action: Urgent Humanitarian Response for Gaza” conference aims to enhance the international community's response to the humanitarian disaster in the Gaza Strip. It seeks to identify effective mechanisms and steps for response, operational and logistical needs, and a commitment to a coordinated approach to the humanitarian situation in Gaza.
