EU foreign policy chief says Israel using starvation as ‘weapon of war’


Josep Borrell, the EU’s foreign policy chief, has said the humanitarian crisis in Gaza is “not a natural disaster” and has accused Israel of using starvation as a “weapon of war”.

“This is a man-made crisis,” Borrell told the UN Security Council on Tuesday. “When we look for alternative ways of providing support by sea or by air, we have to remind that we have to do it because the natural way of providing support to roads is being closed — artificially closed — and starvation is being used as a war arm.”
