Emergency in Gaza : The people believe that they have nothing more to lose

it comes to a war? to be able to

the current Situation to assess this at the outset: around two weeks Ago, many Gazaner are unusual under the Motto "We want to live in" went on the road. This makes the frustration and the hopelessness.

From day to grows day, the number of people who believe that they have nothing more to lose. This is a breeding ground for mobilization, violence and even a possible war. Especially this coming Friday and Saturday could be critical.

How?

of The 30. March is the first anniversary of the "March of return". Hamas is planning for this occasion is a great action with a Million people to protest on the border with Israel. When to move, then possibly is actually, at least thousands on the barrier, Israeli soldiers will stop you, probably with the use of weapons. If that happens, many victims are likely to be to complain.

On the Israeli side, the Situation is also delicate and tense. So shortly before the election on may 9. April the pressure on Prime Minister Netanyahu is very large. Many citizens demand tougher action against Hamas. The danger of war was not a long time.

Why are people in Gaza so desperate?

more and more inhabitants are dependent on humanitarian aid. We now deliver to more than one Million of the needy with food. This is more than half of the population.

Our health stations are reporting that people increasingly have a significant psychological and psychosomatic problems, – to attempted suicides. There are at the same time, strengthened violence against others, such as in families and schools. Often children are the victims.

That the people now dare even to go against with a heavy Hand ruling Hamas on the street, also shows how despondent you are.

Among the protesters many young people are. What are you doing?

There are mostly young men, either against the Hamas demonstrate, or the direction of the border fence. You have no prospect of a decent life. Especially, Jobs are scarce.

The unemployment rate for under-thirty-year-olds is 70 percent. And frustration erupts more often in the protests, with unfortunately a high potential for Violence.
