The people of Palestine need you like never before. This genocidal attack is reaching a new phase. We need you to act now to stop the genocide of the Palestinians in Gaza.
As Israeli bombs hit Gaza from the land, sea, and air, 2.3 million people are now are completely cut off from the outside world and each other. Heavy Israeli airstrikes earlier today have taken out all methods of communication: no landlines, no cellphones, no internet.
This is a terrifying development. It means:
- Families can no longer check on their relatives
- Ambulances cannot be called
- Rescue workers don’t know where to go
- Local journalists can’t document the atrocities
This communications blackout also impacts MECA’s emergency aid for children and families. We can’t reach our staff or partners in Gaza and they can’t communicate with local suppliers. We are uncertain if we will be able to organize more distributions of critical aid for children and families.
Meanwhile, Israel continues to kill, injure and displace Palestinians in Gaza everywhere, at every moment.
Please don’t wait. Don’t close this email. Take these actions now to stop the genocide in Gaza!
P.S. If you are looking for news from Gaza, Al Jazeera is one of the few news outlets still able to broadcast live from Gaza and tell the world what is happening.
