Israel has further tightened its blockade of the Gaza Strip, announcing Monday a suspension of all fuel and gas deliveries. This comes after Israel and Hamas brokered a ceasefire late Saturday, after the Israeli military launched the heaviest bombing assault on Gaza since the 2014 war, killing two children, and Hamas fired a series of rockets toward Israel, wounding four Israelis. Meanwhile, the Israeli Knesset has approved controversial legislation that would ban groups from entering schools if they are critical of the Israeli military. This is Avner Gvaryahu, executive director of Breaking the Silence, one of the groups that would be affected by the ban.
Avner Gvaryahu: “I can promise that we’re going to do whatever we can to fight against this dangerous government. And I’m pretty sure that the students that heard us last year and the principals and teachers that invited us will continue to do that and support our work. And as long as there will be an occupation, there will be soldiers who choose to speak out against it.”
