Princeton University students have launched a hunger strike in solidarity with Palestinians in Gaza who don’t have drinkable water or food.

“The Israeli occupation has deliberately blocked access to basic necessities to engineer a dire famine for the two million residents of Gaza,” the Princeton Gaza Solidarity Encampment group wrote in a news release Sunday night.

“Since the announcement on October 9th by the Israeli Defense Minister prohibiting the entry of food, fuel, and electricity into the Gaza strip, Israel has systematically obstructed and limited access to vital aid for Palestinians in Gaza, even intentionally destroying existing cropland,” the release said.
