Suffocating: The Gaza strip under Israeli blockade

One year on from the end of Israel's military offensive in Gaza Amnesty has called on Israel to lift its 'suffocating' blockade of Gaza, as the organisation released a new briefing on the plight of Palestinians living under the blockade. In Suffocating: The Gaza Strip under Israeli blockade, Amnesty says that Palestinians are finding it all but impossible to survive never mind rebuild after the devastation of Operation 'Cast Lead' (27 December 2008 -18 January 2009).
