Gaza: Cases of poisoning due to eating spoiled food were monitored

Today, Monday, cases of poisoning were recorded among Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, due to eating expired canned food, as a result of the severe food shortage in the Gaza Strip, according to monitoring by the government media office in the Strip.


The government media office said, in a statement circulated to the media, that “residents eat expired canned goods, causing poisoning in large numbers of them.”


The government office added that "famine and diseases are increasing among the residents of the Gaza Strip, especially children," in light of the occupation's practice of a policy of systematic starvation and preventing civilians in Gaza from receiving treatment.


The government statement indicated that the occupation army directly targets municipal crews when they attempt to restart water wells in the Strip.


The government media office explained that the occupation is deliberately putting civil defense crews out of service, by directly targeting them.


The people of the Gaza Strip, especially the northern Gaza Strip, suffer from a severe scarcity of food, water and medicine supplies, and the spread of famine among the citizens, as a result of the Israeli war.


On June 12, the United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, Martin Griffiths, predicted that half of Gaza's population would face death and famine by mid-July, unless aid was allowed to arrive freely.
