At a time when the government media office in Gaza continues to issue warnings of a rapidly approaching famine in… Gaza and northern governoratesSocial media pioneers recently launched the hashtag “North Gaza is dying of hunger.”

This comes as Israel has launched, since October 7, aggression against GazaIt resulted in tens of thousands of martyrs and wounded, most of them children and women, and more than 10,000 missing people, amid deadly famine and massive destruction.

The dimensions and aspects of the famine are many: there is no food to eat, no milk for infants, and no medicine for the sick, while doctors warn that its repercussions are serious on the health of hundreds of thousands who still live in the northern Gaza Strip.

“Northern Gaza is dying of hunger”

Activists from various countries of the world interacted with the hashtag “North Gaza is dying of hunger,” demanding the largest movement to force the occupation to stop its aggression against the Gaza Strip, and to stop using starvation as a weapon.

Since the occupation forces invaded Rafah on May 7, the occupation forces have imposed a stifling siege on the northern Gaza Strip and almost completely stopped the flow of aid, after a partial relief that only lasted weeks, leaving hundreds of thousands of residents facing the specter of famine, according to the Palestinian Information Center.

Hundreds of children, women, and the elderly have been without food or drink for some time, as a number of them wait in the sun and heat in long lines, hoping to get a little food distributed to them.

Scenes and pictures also spread showing emaciated children suffering from malnutrition, in light of the lack of basic materials as a result of the occupation preventing the entry of aid into the northern Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society confirmed that 500,000 people in northern Gaza are threatened with famine, explaining to Arab TV that the situation in the northern Gaza Strip is catastrophic with the return of the specter of famine.

In a previous interview with Al-Arab TV, Tayseer Muheisen, spokesman for the government media office in Gaza, warned that famine was rapidly approaching in the Gaza and northern governorates, calling on the international community to oblige the occupation to open the crossings and bring in aid.

While the media office confirmed that there are no goods in the Gaza and North governorates and people may be forced to eat tree leaves, the international community demanded that the occupation be obligated to open the crossings and bring in aid.

The Director General of the Government Media Office in Gaza, Ismail Al-Thawabit, wrote on the “X” platform: “Northern Gaza is dying of hunger. Aid has not entered the Gaza Strip for 44 days. It is a shame that we are dying of hunger while the Arabs around us are watching and doing nothing.”

Under the hashtag “North Gaza is dying of hunger,” Asma Jabri wrote on the X platform: “In Hanbali jurisprudence: If someone dies of hunger, his neighbors must pay blood money. God starved the people of Gaza and deprived him of the pleasures of this world and the hereafter.”

For his part, blogger Osama Damour published a picture of a child in Gaza showing signs of hunger, and wrote: “I will not apologize for the cruelty of the scene. This picture is a summary of what is happening. Save the Muslims in the Gaza Strip, and intensify publishing to save the Muslims in northern Gaza, where access is not allowed.” anything”.

Ziad Al-Salman, for his part, said: “Save the children of Gaza!! Speak about them, write about them, because silence is complicity in the crime.”

Waseem Saad Qazil said on X: “Starvation is a war crime! Starvation is a war crime! Shame on humanity, shame on the unjust world, the whole world has failed Gaza.”

The Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Occupied Palestinian Territory had previously concluded that Israel used starvation as a method of war, warning of its impact on the residents of Gaza for decades to come, with negative consequences, especially for children, stressing that this constitutes a war crime.

The committee highlighted in a report published over the past few days that at the time of writing this report, children had died from acute malnutrition and dehydration as a result of the siege imposed by Israel, during which it withheld necessary aid, and cut off supplies of water, food, electricity, fuel, and other basic supplies, including humanitarian aid.
