As the international community watches in silence, the people of Gaza continue to suffer under the brutal Israeli blockade.

In a powerful display of solidarity, Malaysian non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have come together to demand immediate action to end the blockade and alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

In a statement, the Malaysia Consultative Council of Islamic Organisations (Mapim) called on the world to put opinions aside and take decisive action to address the crisis in Gaza.

They emphasized that the international community is responsible for intervening and ending the blockade, which has caused untold suffering for innocent civilians.

Mapim president Mohd Azmi Abdul Hamid said the international community is responsible if Gaza is deprived of essential resources such as food, water, electricity, and fuel.

He pointed out that for more than 16 years, Gaza has been held captive as the largest open prison in the world.

We demand immediate UN intervention to force the opening of the Rafah crossing for the flow of humanitarian aid to Gaza. Not only the siege is a violation of International law, it is barbaric and inhuman in every sense of the word.

He also criticized the silence of world leaders and called on them to take concrete steps to address the crisis.

They urged nations to use their diplomatic influence to pressure Israel to lift the blockade and allow humanitarian aid to reach the people of Gaza.

Mohd Azmi warned that the United Nations will lose all legitimacy to enact international law if the siege of Gaza is allowed to be continued and imposed by Israel unilaterally.
