ei: Israel declares Gaza "enemy entity" (19 September 2007)

ei: Israel declares Gaza "enemy entity" (19 September 2007): "On Wednesday, 19 September 2007, Israel's security cabinet unanimously declared the Gaza Strip an 'enemy entity.' The declaration, ostensibly in reaction to the firing of rockets from Gaza, was immediately backed by US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and followed by a series of collective punishment measures that have crippled Gaza's already suffering economy. Israel has denied the importing of basic needs including medicine, severely limited exports, cut fuel supplies to the impoverished strip, and halted the movement of people to and from Gaza -- including those in need of urgent medical care."
