Red Cross notices Gaza isn't suffering
The Gaza Strip is not experiencing a humanitarian crisis, the Israel Defense Forces quoted a Red Cross official as saying on Wednesday.
In an interview conducted by Rotem Caro-Weizman and published on the IDF's Spokesman's Office website, Mathilde Redmatn, deputy director of the Red Cross in the Gaza Strip, said that there "is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza," adding: "If you go to the supermarket, there are products. There are restaurants and a nice beach."
|How exciting -- they actually saw the obvious! Nobody else in those circles seems to manage that little trick.|
Rather, according to Redmatn, the issue in Gaza was "mainly in maintenance of infrastructure and in access to goods, concrete for example."
|To Gazans infrastructure equals tunnels, and tunnels get them killed in so many ways. They must be protected from themselves, poor dears.|
