Gaza, right on the Mediterranean, has to buy imported fish

and our pompous, navel-gazing news media continues to ignore the human rights disaster perpetrated by israel's genocidal policies that continues day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year in palestine and gaza...
Under a sea blockade, the coastal Gaza Strip has now become a seafood importer. Its desperate fishermen — cut off from plentiful fishing grounds by Israeli patrol boats — have turned to sneaking into Egyptian waters in tiny motorboats to buy their catch and bring it home.

Others bring in fish by land, in ice-packed plastic foam boxes pulled through smuggling tunnels from Egypt. And even though the Mediterranean is right on Gaza's doorstep, locals are creating fish ponds to provide Gaza's 1.5 million people their key source of protein.
