Not only is Israel carpet bombing Gaza, causing mass casualties and trapping survivors under rubble, they intentionally prevent rescue and medical crews to access the scenes. This has been happening since the beginning, but one of the most recent incidents happened toady, 6/28. Gaza's civil defense reported that Israel blocked their access to try and respond to 23 emergency calls from the al-Shakoush neighborhood. Anyone who tries to enter is shot at. The al-Shakoush neighborhood isn't the only are civilians have been massacred today, unfortunately. Israel has continued to attack the al-Mawasi refugee camp - one of the places they told people in Rafah to "evacuate" to. Since the global outcry against Israel's planned invasion of Rafah their strategy shift has been clear - forcibly transfer people to other places in smaller numbers and then massacre them there instead. It's absolutely reprehensible Israel has been allowed to continue this genocide unimpeded. Palestinians in Gaza who survived the winter where people literally froze to death in tents, are now facing the extreme heat and all of the life threatening dangers it brings. The only shelter available are makeshift tents in refugee camps or partially destroyed buildings. There is no climate control, access to water, or anything that could help alleviate the heat. I am implore you to stop this. We all know this administration has the power to force Israel's hand. It's been time to do so for long enough - do it now. I demand that you:  – Hold Israel accountable for a permanent, immediate ceasefire, their violations of the Genocide Convention, and gross human rights violations by any means necessary – Call for the immediate end of Israel’s occupation and apartheid and support Palestinians in their fight for freedom and peace – Secure the immediate release and safety of all Palestinians who have been abducted and held captive by Israel, including those whose indefinite detention began prior to 10/7 – Permanently end all monetary, diplomatic, and military aid given to Israel and enforce Leahy Law – Reallocate all funds given to Israel and commit additional resources for ongoing humanitarian relief for Palestinians starting with immediately resuming funding of UNRWA – Immediately withdraw all U.S. troops, military assets, and all other assets deployed throughout the Middle East and cease all actions that further escalate a larger regional conflict – Pass legislation that voids all anti-BDS laws at the federal level – Vote no on H.R. 7521 and any similar legislation proposed
