Israeli Government Documents Show Deliberate Policy To Keep Gazans At Near-starvation Levels

“The documents reveal that the state approved "a policy of deliberate reduction" for basic goods in the Gaza Strip (section h.4, page 5*). Thus, for example, Israel restricted the supply of fuel needed for the power plant, disrupting the supply of electricity and water. The state set a "lower warning line" (section g.2, page 5) to give advance warning of expected shortages in a particular item, but at the same time approved ignoring that warning, if the good in question was subject to a policy of "deliberate reduction". Moreover, the state set an "upper red line" above which even basic humanitarian items could be blocked, even if they were in demand (section g.1, page 5). The state claimed in a cover letter to Gisha that in practice, it had not authorized reduction of "basic goods" below the "lower warning line", but it did not define what these "basic goods" were.”
I presume this is pretty much much what we did to Iraq for 10 years prior to invasion so a tried and trusted method.
But fundamentally inhuman
and as Media Lens point out not something that the mainstream media wish to tell us much about.
