While expressing concern about the human crisis in the Gaza Strip, the EU Foreign Policy Chief called the strip the world's biggest open-air graveyard.

Iran Press /Europe: Before a meeting of EU ministers in Brussels, Josep Borrell told reporters on Monday: "Gaza was before the war the greatest open-air prison. Today it's the greatest open-air graveyard."

"It's a graveyard for tens of thousands of people and also a graveyard for many of the most important principles of humanitarian law."

Borrell also reiterated that Israel was using famine as a "weapon of war" by not allowing aid trucks into Gaza.

"We are not talking about a full suspension association agreement. This would be something for the commission to propose. We are talking about the political dimension based on the respect to humanitarian law," Borrell explained.

It was on October 7 that the Palestinian Resistance carried out Operation Al-Aqsa Flood on the Israeli regime's forces in response to the regime's daily crimes against the Palestinian people during 75 years of occupation of Palestine since 1948. To compensate for the scandalous failure, the regime has blocked Gaza's border crosses and is bombing the strip. 

So far, from the beginning of the all-out war against Gaza, more than 31,700 people have been martyred and over 73,000 others have been wounded.

People in Gaza are simultaneously coping with both the Israeli strikes and the famine emerging out of the regime's war on Gaza.
