The President of the European Council Charles Michel on Friday called for an end on use of hunger as the means of war in the Gaza.

Relentless attacks on the Gaza has seen thousands of people including children killed which the international community has widely condemned.

“Gazan children and infants are dying of malnutrition. Substantial and urgent efforts are required to immediately end hunger as an instrument of war in Gaza,” Michel said on X [formerly Twitter].

Mitchel added that the international community has repeatedly called for more humanitarian aid to enter into Gaza: “Israel’s announcement to reopen temporarily the Erez crossing point as well as to allow aid to enter through the Ashdod port is not enough.”

Benjamin Natahanyu’s Israel has killed more than 33,000 Palestinians since an October 2023 cross-border attack by Palestinian group Hamas that claimed around 1,200 lives. Besides the casualties, there has been mass destruction, and most of the population is internally displaced.

Israel has also imposed a crippling blockade on the Gaza Strip, leaving its population, particularly residents of northern Gaza, on the verge of starvation.

The International Court of Justice had last week asked Israel to do more to prevent famine in the country.
