Five months after Israel promised to introduce measures to ease the allegedly illegal blockade of the Gaza Strip, there are few signs of real improvement on the ground, 22 international human rights and humanitarian organizations charged in a report issued early Tuesday morning.

While the report accused Israel of failing to fulfill the promises it had made to ease the blockade, it argued at the same time that any easing of the blockade would be insufficient and that the only solution to the hardships of the Palestinian population was to lift it altogether.
