Norwegian Medical Mission: We call on the Arab countries to cut off gas and oil from America

The head of the Norwegian medical mission to Gaza, Dr. Mads Gilbert, called on Israel to bring water, fuel and food into the Gaza Strip immediately, and to stop its war on the besieged Strip.


He added in statements to Al Jazeera from Cairo, "What we need now is to stop the killing and production of death in the Gaza Strip."


"The siege of Gaza is killing people, and this is against the law," he said, adding that 14 hospitals were closed in addition to many other medical clinics due to the Israeli bombing.


The Norwegian doctor called for the opening of the Rafah crossing, stressing that "the world cannot accept the entry of aid by train," stressing that the priority must be to stop the bombing and that "the world must act now."


Gilbert added that the World Health Organization has documented more than 100 attacks on medical facilities. They require unified action. The Norwegian doctor asked the Arab countries to cut off gas and oil from the United States, and said, “Maybe this will stop the bombing immediately,” considering that the massacres of civilians under siege require unified Arab action. The official of the Norwegian mission to Gaza confirmed that the Israeli army has a long history of bombing health facilities and workers, and that “the people of Gaza are imprisoned, and are subjected to the most violent attacks during this century.”


It is noteworthy that Norwegian Foreign Minister Espen Barth Eide expressed - today, Tuesday - his country’s belief that Israel may have violated international law by bombing the Gaza Strip, which led to the leveling of neighborhoods and the killing of thousands of Palestinians.


Norwegian Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Stoer also said that it is necessary to deliver relief materials to civilians in Gaza as quickly as possible, considering that Israel has violated the rules of international law in its war on the (besieged) Gaza Strip.
