That this House notes the appalling humanitarian disaster in the Gaza Strip, which UN officials have described as the worst crisis to have befallen the 1.5 million Palestinians of Gaza; further notes that Israel has prevented basic humanitarian supplies from entering the Gaza Strip, including some medicines, clothing for children and essential spare parts; further notes that prohibited items even include some foodstuffs; is extremely concerned that hospitals are running short of fuel supplies, and that this threatens basic health care, including babies in incubators; considers that this blockade is a form of collective punishment in fundamental breach of international law; calls upon the Government to insist on the immediate ending of the blockade of the Gaza Strip both on the Israel-Gaza and Egypt-Gaza borders; and further calls on the Government to support all efforts to bring about a permanenet ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, including a complete cessation of violence by all parties including rocket attacks on Israel and attacks on Gaza by Israeli military forces.
